Valdosta - Mayor John Fretti returned this week from a trip to China.

He hopes the trip could mean more economic growth for the city.

The Mayor was one of 222 mayors invited to China. He says they attended conferences regarding international tourism and economic development.

He hopes the relationships he forged on this trip will not only help the city recruit Chinese companies but industries from all over the world.

"When I say we gained a prospective, we gained a global perspective so we are going to focus on whoever and anyone who would benefit from coming to Valdosta and Valdosta benefit from them coming here," Mayor Fretti says.

Brad Lofton from the Lowndes County Industrial Authority went as well.

Mayor Fretti was one of four mayors invited on the trip.
