This October, The Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce will host a memorable 9-day journey to China for members and guests. This will be a cost-effective opportunity for area people to become familiar with some of the leading cities in China and to experience their centuries old customs and history, while witnessing first-hand their rapidly changing economy and their expanding role in the global marketplace. We invite you to join us for this unique immersion in Chinese culture.
Citslinc International, a company with over 28 years experience in China Tours has been working successfully with American Chambers of Commerce to offer this opportunity. “I admit I was skeptical when I first reviewed the tour materials and the pricing. I felt it was too good to be true,” stated Jeannie Hebert President and CEO of the Blackstone Valley Chamber of Commerce. “Then I met with several Chamber of Commerce executives who have traveled on this tour and was overwhelmed by their positive reactions. Many of these people are booking return trips. When I met with the representative of Citslinc, I was blow away by their professionalism and attention to detail. I heartily recommend you investigate and take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity!”
