Hallitus piti kesäkokouksen Fiboxin Guangzhoun tehtaalla, jossa oli mahdollisuus myös saunomiseen. Tilaisuudessa annettiin lahja Finpron Jari Seiloselle tunnustuksena useita vuosia jatkuneesta yhteistyöstä kanssamme. Jari siirtyi pian kokouksen jälkeen uusiin tehtäviin Taiwanille, edelleen Finpron organisaatioon. Ilman Jarin, hänen edeltäjiensä ja Finpron tukea emme olisi selviytyneet ja pystyneet jatkamaan toimintaamme keskeytyksettä vuodesta 2003 alkaen. Hallitus pohti kokouksessa mm loppuvuoden toimintasuunnitelmaa, jatkajaa Jarin työlle sekä budjettia.


FBC Guangdoning hallitus oli kutsuttu mukaan Guangzhoun Mandarin Oriental -hotellissa pidettyyn tilaisuuteen, jossa juhlistettiin Finnairin uuden Guangzhoun reitin avajaisia. Finnair oli kokeillut ko reittia jo kymmenisen vuotta sitten, mutta nyt se paatettiin avata uudelleen mm kiinalaisten Suomeen ja muualle Eurooppaan suuntautuvaa matkailua helpottamaan. Paikalla olivat mm Finnairin toimitusjohtaja Pekka Vauramo, Suomen Kiinan suurlahettilas Marja Rislakki seka runsas joukko muita kiinalaisia ja suomalaisia, seka suomalaisen median edustajia. FBC Guangdongin hallituksen puheenjohtaja Mika Tavast seka hallituksen jasenet Pekka Kyyriainen, Jari Kaisanlahti, Petri Matikainen ja Ville Majanen olivat paikalla ja tapasivat suurlahettilaan aiemmin paivalla lounaan merkeissa.
