Today, the newly appointed Singapore Consul-General in Xiamen, China, Ms Tee Bee Lock, visited our factory in Shaowu, Fujian.

Star Bamboo is one of the more prominent Singapore companies in the area, so it was very nice of them to come by for a chat.

The Consulate-General office is a great channel to reflect our concerns and feedback about doing business in China.

According to their web site, their mission is to “safeguard the interests of Singaporeans visiting, living and working in the Consular Districts of the Fujian, Guangdong and Hainan Provinces as well as to promote bilateral, political, economic and cultural links between Singapore and China.”

Sounds great to me. 🙂

Our Managing Director, Mr Tan Yin Keong, postponed his flight for 2 days in order to meet her.

In this day of instantaneous electronic communication, nothing beats talking face to face.

Thanks very much for coming by, Ms Tee!
