10 LIFESTYLE TUESDAY FEBRUARY 5 2019 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 FOR 13 years the Australia China Business Council has represented the interests of NT businesses doing business with China. We also assist Chinese business with their investment engagement with the NT. The Northern Territory is a small jurisdiction so we must reach out to China to get the NT noticed in the Chinese business and investment community. In 2018 this outreach was achieved by organising a two day One Belt One Road conference in Darwin. ACBC supported the NT Government engagement with China with the Reaching South conference in Shenzhen. ACBC NT provided ongoing support for the tourism community to understand and manage the impact of Chinese tourists arriving on direct flights. ACBC NT signed an MOU with CCPIT Guangzhou which provides a foundation for further targeted engagement from the NT. NT and business engagement has been broadened with the ACBC NT President speaking at Silk Road Chamber of International Commerce, ASEAN and APEC trade, investment and policy forums in China. This helps position the NT and provides essential background for better business and investment decisions. ACBC NT continues to provide up-to-date China analysis to members with the fortnightly newsletter. Daryl Guppy ACBC NT President Our business relationships Chinese New Year Feature The CNY festival program DARWINS Chung Wah society will be one of the places to be during this Chinese New Year, with a number of events to celebrate the Year of the Pig. The Chinese New Year festival at the Darwin Turf Club takes place February 23 24 and features something for everyone. For the foodies out there, the society will present the original sartees that were featured at the Royal Darwin Show for more than 60 years. The traditional recipe that has been handed down for generations will be back. A sartee stall will be set up at the Festival and beef and chicken sartees will be made using the original sartee marinade. There was high demand when the Chung Wah had to unfortunately withdraw from attending the Show. This is your opportunity to once again taste those tender sartees. Celebrity chef Adam Liaw of Destination Flavour will be in Darwin for the Festival. The Australian Asian chef with the man bun will be at the Festival. This is an amazing opportunity for Territorians to learn from a master and to perhaps get that Insta-selfie. Mr Liaw is scheduled to be on centre stage at the Festival on both Saturday and Sunday during the Festival. He will be doing a cook ing demonstration and will be available to meet Territorians. There will also be plenty of entertainment for the arts and performance fanatics. Youve seen the Chinese Lions doing blessings but have you ever seen a Chinese Lion dance spectacular? The Chung Wah Lion and Dragon troupe are preparing a very special performance to showcase at the Festival. This will be a story performed by a troupe of lions to the sounds of New Year (gongs, cymbals and drum) and will feature the majestic and highly skilled strength of the performers. Lion Dance blessings will be another highlight. According to traditional Chinese belief, the lion signifies courage, stability and superiority. The lions dance is performed with highly practised traditional elements. Accompanied by fire crackers and clashing cymbals and gong, the lions every movement has specific rhythm and movements to scare away evil and bad spirits, and then blesses the property to signify that there will be an abundance of everything in the coming year. The Chinese New Year Festival has something for everyone and will be one of the most entertaining events of the year. City of Darwin through its Haikou Sister City Subcommittee wishes everyone a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year. darwin.nt.gov.au
