Tawich visits China

 Back in November, a team from Tawich and the Cree Nation of Wemindji travelled with advisors and Coordinators to Beijing China to complete a mission to visit Inner Mongolia China to experience and understand the businesses and resources they can offer to Wemindji. The Mission included Chief Christina Gilpin, Deputy Chief Arden Visitor from the Cree Nation of Wemindji and from Tawich participants included; President, Tony Gull, Vice President of Corporate Relations and Marketing, Danny Tomatuk, Chief Executive Officer- Holly Danyluk and Sam Gilpin one of our Board of Directors. Other participants included Jean Skittekate, Robert Milo and Sam Gull as Advisors, our Coordinators who developed our schedule was Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Yu.

The main reason why we travelled to China was to learn and explore opportunities in Business, to understand the way they do business, and to immerse ourselves in their culture. We travelled from Montreal on November 6 and returned to Canada on November 13, 2018. Our schedule was so grueling we had no time to do other activities other than sleep after each daily scheduled activity. We visited two cities Bayannuur City and Ordos City, Inner Mongolia (northern China). What a great experience as we were thrusted into their Culture and their day-to-day life. We completed presentations to each of the cities as they also provided their presentations to us. Our main objective was to provide to them the history of Wemindji and the various resources we have, not to mention the history of Tawich Development Corporation. We came out of both meetings with Letter of Intents to establish relationships that foster exchanges and cooperation between CNW/TDC and both cities in the field of trade, tourism and the arts. Furthermore, to promote investment opportunities with both cities.

The visit to the City of Ordos was spectacular!  The city lit up at night that was once dubbed “The Ghost City” situated 700 Kms north of Beijing. Ordos was built in 2009 and has a current population of about 2 million (Google Ordos and read up on its unique stature) The pic shown of us with the Ordos City Dignitaries in front of their many beautiful architectural buildings after signing the Letter of Intent.  The building is the Ordos Museum that houses ancient Mongolian artifacts and history. Standing between Chief Christina Gilpin and Holly Danyluk was the Deputy Major of Ordos who was once a CEO of a big company in Shanghai.
