Chinatown Businesses Open!

Chinatown Businesses Open!




Date: 18 February 2020
Public Statement
 
Chinatown Businesses are Open!
 
Chinatown Haymarket is respected for being a safe, diverse, open and welcoming precinct. With many retail and food businesses and professional services in the area, Haymarket represents one of the most diverse and commercially growing districts and we encourage and support the economic strength the area offers.

Last Friday night during one of the busiest and most popular times of the week, Sydney's Chinatown Friday Night Markets drew its regular crowds and will do so again this coming Friday. With most Haymarket businesses running 7 days a week from 10am to 10pm, we encourage Sydney residents and the local community to continue their usual patronage of their local Haymarket businesses with a wide range of choices for food and retail outlets.

Haymarket Chamber of Commerce (HCC) President Simon Chan said, " The current fear we are experiencing is based on a lot of misinformation and is disproportionate to the risk and could be more damaging to our economy and social fabric."

HCC promotes transparency and accurate reporting that encourages unity, goodwill and truth amid the current discrimination and politicisation towards Australian Asian businesses and community.

With most Haymarket businesses running 7 days a week from 10am to 10pm, Sydney locals and residents continue their usual patronage to their local Haymarket businesses that represent a wide ranging array of retail, food and markets.

Come and embrace the exciting cutlure and culinary experience at Chinatown as businesses are open and running as usual.
