NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Rockland County Executive Ed Day’s promise to bring new business and tourism to Rockland County is reaching as far away as China as a busload of 30 Chinese nationals will spend Wednesday, April 20, on a tour designed to show them what the county has to offer.
The visitors include businesspeople and Chinese-speaking tour operators. They will take a tour designed to show them that Rockland can be both a tourist destination as well as a potential location for new businesses.
“We want them to see that Rockland is close to New York City and has wonderful places to visit,” Day said. “We also hope that they consider locating their businesses here in Rockland, which has a business-friendly atmosphere.”
The day-long visit was arranged by Lucy Redzeposki, Rockland’s Director of Economic Growth.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for these visitors to see what Rockland has to offer,” she said. The tour includes a visit to Memorial Park in Nyack and a tour of Victorian homes in the village; a glimpse of the natural beauty of Seven Lakes Drive in Harriman State Park, lunch at the Bear Mountain Inn, the Shops of Nanuet and Palisades Center malls, among other stops. The group will be accompanied by Man Li Lin, a project manager with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Members of the Rockland Historical Society will serve as guides. Chinese translators will be provided. Day will meet the group during lunch at the Bear Mountain Inn.
