Chinese authorities have identified an outbreak of a new type of coronavirus believed to have originated from Wuhan City in Hubei Province.
Travel restrictions have been imposed across China and current advice from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs is not to travel to China.
The wellbeing and safety of business delegates and staff are of utmost importance to the City of Melbourne and given the risks presented by this evolving situation, they have taken the difficult decision to postpone the planned Business Mission to China in March.
Any future mission planning and business opportunities will be advertised when they arise. In the meantime, our thoughts are with those affected by the outbreak in China and around the world, and we support their efforts for a swift containment of the disease.
