Bundy strengthens Chinese ties

BUNDABERG'S ties with sister city Nanning were strengthened yesterday when the new Chinese pavilion and gardens in the Botanic Gardens were officially opened.

Che Rongfu, secretary of the Communist Party committee of Nanning, and Bundaberg Mayor Lorraine Pyefinch performed the ceremony together on a warm winter's day in the city.

Cr Pyefinch said four elements of Chinese culture were incorporated in the garden – architecture, in the form of the man-made pavilion, plus stone, water and plant life.

She said the pavilion was a special piece of China in Bundaberg.

Mr Che said the pavilion conveyed the city of Nanning's expectations of close ties with Bundaberg into the future.

The centrepiece of the garden's decor is the Friendship Stone, donated by the city of Nanning to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the signing of the sister city agreement with Bundaberg.
