Telstra Helps Beijing Study Group

Telstra has offered to assist Beijing in its telecommunications preparations to win the 2008 Olympic Games. Telstra and the Beijing Bid Committee have formed an initial, six-month joint study group to exchange information and to prepare the telecommunications component of China's bid to the International Olympics Committee (IOC). Mayor of Beijing, Liu Qi met with Telstra chairman Bob Mansfield in China last week as a follow-up to discussions held between both parties in Sydney during the 2000 Olympic Games. Mansfield said Telstra looks forward to passing on its Olympic experience adding that China "is an important potential market for our company".
