It’s unusual for five Chinese officials to visit Seattle all on one day. In the past, it has usually been only two or three attendees for one community event.

Two Chinese events were held on July 22, within a block of one another. The Soo Yuen Benevolent Association celebrated the 10th anniversary of its building on Maynard Avenue South, at the space of the former Ocean City Restaurant, with 500 people. The other event was the Chinatown parade organized by the Greater Seattle Chinese Chamber of Commerce, which included more than 5,000 people.

Led by Deputy Consul General Song Ruan, the delegation said the Seattle Chinese community is important to them. Song and other officials are new to the community.

Indeed, the officials are giving the Chinese community a lot of face time. (end)
