Governor Brown Signs Sister State Agreement with China’s Guangdong Province

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. last week signed an agreement to establish a sister state/province relationship between California and the Guangdong Province of China and pledged to strengthen ties with the province on trade, technological innovation, clean energy, low carbon development, education and tourism.
Last year – during the Governor’s Trade and Investment Mission to China – Governor Brown visited Guangdong’s capital city of Guangzhou, where he committed to forge a stronger relationship with China’s most populous and economically productive province.
The agreement builds on more than a year and a half of significant diplomatic and business exchanges between California and China, including a climate change agreement with China’s National Development and Reform Commission, the Trade and Investment Mission to China, the opening of the California-China Office of Trade and Investment in Shanghai and a meeting with China’s President Xi Jinping. Partnership on climate change was one of many subjects the Governor discussed with President Xi and a key component of the trade mission, which included a first-of-its-kind agreement with China’s Minister of Environmental Protection, a meeting with officials from the National Development and Reform Commission and remarks on climate change at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

    Dear Editor:

    We have started a campaign and petition yesterday to urge Governor Brown to use this golden opportunity to request Governor Zhu to crack down on the illegal dog and cat slaughter houses and markets. We believe with his help, we can make some historic achievement for taking down the heinous dog and cat meat trade in China.
    We hope that your newspapers would find that our campaign is a worthy cause and will tell your readers about it.

    Here are the links to our petition and our FB page for your reference. They have our campaign details.

    Please feel free to call me with any questions. Thank you very much for your time.
