On Thursday June 25, Mr Styles will make a four hour journey to Guangzhou to address private sector investors at the investment forum and later host a networking dinner for Chinese corporates and the Northern Territory business delegation. Participating in the Guangzhou International Finance Expo (GZIFE) provides international market exposure for Northern Territory investment sectors, Mr Styles said. GZIFE runs from 26 to 28 June 2015 and attracts a diverse range of visitors including corporate investors, high net worth individuals and representatives from the finance sector, for example: asset management companies, banking executives, investment and wealth managers. This event is South China's largest financial services exhibition. Its aim is to position Guangdong as the leading province on the financial map of China and as the leading financial centre for South China. Through its programs and exhibition, the event provides a major platform for businesses to showcase their products and services, and promote investment opportunities. The exhibition will host approximately 300 exhibitors and around 390,000 visitors are anticipated. There are 20 business forums and 41 promotional events held over the three day event. The Office of Asian Engagement, Trade and Investment partnered with the Australia China Business Council NT (ACBC-NT) to coordinate the visit and the delegation will include three Territory organisations from the property, resources and tourism sectors; Elders Real Estate; Wildman Wilderness and Outback Minerals and Australia New Zealand Resources. On Friday June 26, Minister Styles flies to Xian for trade talks with senior Government officials in the Shaanxi Province Lou Qinjian, to discuss opportunities in investment, education and cultural exchanges. Mr Styles returns to Guangzhou late that evening for talks the following day Saturday June 27, with senior executives of one of China's biggest private sector investors Mr Su Zhigang. Mr Su is the owner of hotels, zoos and the world's biggest safari park. His multi-billion dollar Eco tourism investments are world renown. Mr Styles said he has been invited by Mr Su to inspect the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom on Saturday which features the world's largest aquarium home to the rare whale shark and Beluga whales. The focus of talks with the Chimelong Group will be potential Eco and tourism investment opportunities in the Northern Territory and a possible Territory presence at Chimelong parks, he said. After the two hour stop over in Ocean Kingdom I will travel to Macau to have investment talks with LED Lighting, which met recently with PowerWater Chief Executive John Baskerville to discuss consumer energy saving opportunities in the Territory." While in Macau Minister Styles will have talks with executives from China Bank.
