The City of Melbourne was the first capital city in Australia to set up a Sister-City relationship in China, choosing the port city of Tianjin with which it had good connections in 1980, and subsequently the only Australian local government to have an office in China. The relationship is a model and beacon for other governments around the world.

The relationship has been very positive for both cities with many economic, educational and cultural activities and outcomes. Numerous missions and delegations have exchanged visits, educational programs for leaders have run for many years, gardens have been built and Melbourne firms have won business opportunities; football matches have even been played.

Chin Communications has been a partner to the City for over 25 years and has witnessed the growing interest and benefits in engagement. Hardly a week goes by without a visiting delegation at the Town Hall meeting with local businesses and establishing relationships.

Having responsive and experienced interpreters and translators available in Melbourne and China has helped the City consolidate its important messages whether through a Melbourne Business Mission handbook or an anniversary dinner, an art exhibition, or an education program. Melbourne is a much more vibrant and connected city through the City’s China activities. Local businesses have engaged and the benefits have flowed to all of us economically and culturally.
