Bundaberg festivities air in China

ALMOST half a world away Nanning residents were interested in how Bundaberg celebrated the Chinese New Year, with journalists from the city travelling with the delegation to cover the event.

Nanning Daily news director Wen Xue Jun said the two cities had a “beautiful relationship”.

“This time we’ve come here to review the friendship between the sister cities over the past 12 years,” he said.

Mr Jun said he had found Bundaberg residents to be friendly and interested in learning more about Chinese culture.

The journalists sent stories and photographs to China each afternoon.

“We will make these celebrations a part of our work, especially the welcome we had from the mayor,” Mr Jun said.
