A DELEGATION from Bundaberg's sister city of Nanning has toured the region with an eye on business opportunities.

The visitors toured the Botanic Gardens, Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Jabiru as part of their visit.

Cameron Bisley, Bundaberg Regional Council's manager of commercial business and economic development, said the visit was about further developing tourism and business links with Nanning.

"Some from the delegation represented an automotive manufacturing company," he said.

"We've introduced them to a number of local related businesses and it certainly looks like we've done some business matching there.

"We've provided a platform for the businesses to connect and now it's up to those businesses to develop relationships."

Mr Bisley said the visit was the first of three business delegations scheduled to fly in to Bundaberg this year.
