A video conference on marine cooperation between Yantai and Jamaica was held in Yantai, Shandong province.
The event was hosted by the Chinese Embassy in Jamaica and welcomed officials and enterprises from Jamaica and Yantai to talk about cooperation in marine fishery fields.
Yantai has a strong marine economy foundation, a complete fishery industry system and advanced technology, all of which help promote cooperation between the two sides, officials said during the conference.
Officials from Jamaica answered questions raised by Yantai enterprises about fishery resources, processing capacity, product quality, export advantages, logistics, human resources, and tax policies.
They also hoped that the enterprises from both sides will establish partnerships to develop fishery resources in Jamaica and cooperate in the deep-sea fishing and seafood processing industry.
Yantai established sister city relations with Kingston, capital of Jamaica in 2019. The relationship has helped Yantai develop its marine economic relationship with Jamaica, boost imports and exports, and develop the marine economy in the Caribbean region.
