In February of 2016, Sea Eagle Consulting coordinated an education delegation talk between the Lower Hutt City Council and the education bureau from Xi’an. The Lower Hutt mayor, Ray Lawrence, director of public relations, James Lamb, and founder of Sea Eagle Consulting, Haying Shi, all visited the delegation talk at Hutt Valley School where a friendship-agreement was signed between Hutt Valley School and No. 26 Middle School in Xi’an. We presented each member of delegates with a specially-chosen gift that represented New Zealand’s significant symbols and crafts.
This connection continues to grow and delegates have invited New Zealand partners to visit Xi’an in the future. The founder of Sea Eagle Consulting, Haiying Shi, continues to follow-up with Lower Hutt City Council to maintain this relationship and starts the first steps of preparation for the future visit in 2017.
