Canberra Times reported that a new construction industry group has been formed in Canberra, with the aim of supporting local Chinese companies and channeling foreign and interstate investment into the ACT. The ACT Construction Guild will be officially launched at an event next week at Old Parliament House. The guild said it had about 40 signed-up members from across the property sector, including developers, builders, real estate agents and lawyers. The membership base includes Canberra-based Chinese companies, as well as Australian firms. It's president, Mr Donald Chen, is a director of Mitchell-based company Auseum Development and Construction.

A flyer for the launch event stated the organisation's goals were to help connect individuals and companies working in the local property sector, while also promoting "communication and co-operation" between the Australian and Chinese construction and real estate industries for "mutual benefit".

A spokesman for the guild, Mr John Hou, said it also wanted to help channel interstate and international investment into the ACT. He said that "The members of the guild are mainly Canberra-based individuals and corporations, we all love Canberra and hope to grow with the city together. We will unite the power and attract the investments interstate [and] even worldwide to Canberra. The guild will take responsibility for contributing to Canberra's economic growth."

Mr Hou said the guild would provide support to the estimated 1000 Chinese people working in Canberra's property industry. He said that "Some of those people might not have very good English, so we will translate all of the industry news and government documents for them."
