Marysville welcomes Chinese Friendship City delegation


A delegation from the Chinese city of Yueqing visited Marysville today to discuss local government issues and tour the city’s water treatment facilities. 

Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, City Councilmember Steve Muller and city department directors welcomed the delegation and hosted a round table conversation at City Hall. The Chinese delegation included Ye Weiquiong, Deputy Mayor of the Yueqing people’s Government; Zhang Qi Gui, Director of Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs; Huang Xiaozhong, Director of Development and Reform; Tang Jian Sheng, Director of Water Resources; Fang Liming, Director of Centre District Management; and Lian Zhengjian, Advisor of Hongqiao Town of Yuequing.

The discussion included manufacturing, economy, housing and natural resources. Yueqing is a city with1.3 million residents in eastern China. Delegates described its rainy climate and beautiful geography including mountains and coastline along the East China Sea. The city’s local government is focused on industrial competitiveness and quality-of-life investments for its residents. The group then toured the City of Marysville’s wastewater and filtration plants and storm water treatment facilities.

Marysville established a Friendship City relationship with Yueqing in 2014 to promote educational and economic opportunities and cultural awareness.  A Yueqing delegation previously visited Marysville in April 2015. Both visits were coordinated by Marysville residents Noah Rui and Rachel Erickson-Rui, who serve on the Mayor’s Diversity Advisory Committee.
