Chinese visitors tour Rockland County for tourism, business opportunities


On the waterfront

NEW CITY – A group of Chinese business leaders spent two days in Rockland County this week to learn about tourism and business opportunities in the county.

Rockland Director of Economic Growth and Tourism Lucy Redzeposki said the county is working to make it a tourist destination for visitors from China as well as an area where Chinese businesses can make investments.

The visitors included travel agents for the Chinese community, business leaders, marketing managers and media executives.  They started the tour Thursday at the Nyack Marina, where they went on a sailboat tour of the Hudson River.  They also visited the Edward Hopper House and Time Hotel in Nyack.

After enjoying lunch at the Red Hill Café in New City, they went to Haverstraw Bay County Park, Perkins Memorial Tower, Bear Mountain State Park, Garner Art Center and had dinner at Union Restaurant in Haverstraw.

They spent the night at the Time Hotel in Nyack and on Friday went to the Palisades Center Mall in West Nyack.

“They visited all different part of the county to really get good feeling for what Rockland is like,” said County Executive Edwin Day. “They saw Rockland’s natural beauty, arts and cultural offerings and restaurants and shopping.”
