The President of the World Trade Center Los Angeles also had the opportunity to meet some of the region's major economic stakeholders during presentations of the Euroméditerranée urban regeneration consortium and Marseille's port authority, Grand Port Maritime de Marseille.

This tour of the local ecosystem was also the chance for the former aide to the Mayor of Los Angeles to meet Marseille Mayor, Mr. Jean Claude Gaudin and the President of the Marseille-Provence Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Jean Luc Chauvin, at two dinners at which Marseille's position as a gateway to Africa and many other points regarding the local economic fabric were discussed with a view to setting up partnerships.

That's the aim of our visit."

It should be noted that this visit could be followed by that of a delegation of Californian business people headed by the City of Los Angeles. Learning about the regional ecosystem will allow Mr. Cheung to discover the many similarities that exist between the two cities, in particular relating to projects in the maritime and port, aircraft, digital, agribusiness and medical sectors.
