The incoming Chinese delegation is from Wuhan, the capital of central China’s Hubei Province. Wuhan is also the headquarters of major domestic car and steel producers, and more than 300 companies of the world’s top 500 companies have a presence in the city.

The purpose of the incoming Hubei delegation visit has three major focus areas:
