Dothan welcomes Chinese visitors with a "meet and greet" at the Wiregrass Museum of Art. Dozens of potential business partners attended to become acquainted with one another.
Chinese guests were greeted with flowers upon their arrival. The event is bringing people not only from China. People from 42 communities and six different states will also be in attendance.
"It's not just because of Dothan. It's regional, it's national. I hope this will be a small spot for movement to connect people," said Ray Cheng, CEO of Sozo Group.
The manufacturing symposium lasts until Friday Mar. 28.
