A high-ranking Chinese delegation, led by the Vice-Mayor of Shanghai, Mr Xu Kunlin, is visiting Otago Polytechnic.
The visit reflects the deep, important and ongoing connections between Otago Polytechnic and Shanghai, and is part of the wider 23-year Sister City relationship between Dunedin and the Chinese metropolis, which is home to more than 24 million people.
In addition to the civic delegation from Shanghai, students from the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics have also met Otago Polytechnic staff and students, as have students from the Shanghai University of Engineering Science's Fashion School, who will showcase garments as part of Otago Polytechnic’s School of Design (Fashion) Collections 17 event tonight.
