Door County's effort to improve business ties with its sister city Jingdezhen, China is getting help from the State of Wisconsin. During the Door-Kewaunee Legislative Days in Madison, Door County Board of Supervisors Chair Dave Lineau learned there are programs that could help local businesses overcome the challenges of doing business in China.
Lineau says efforts are currently underway to recruit four Door County businesses looking to export their goods to Jingdezhen and a former ceramics factory that's now a mall. Lineau says the WEDC has the connections to make that possible.
The Door County-Jingdezhen sister city arrangement continues to be strong. Lineau and other Door County officials visited China last Fall. This June a contingent from Jingdezhen will be visiting Wisconsin.
