THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chinese Vice-Minister Dai Bingguo and his delegation missed their date with the software Technopark campus here during their two-day trip to Kerala.

V.J. Jayakumar, general manager of the Technopark campus, said he got a call Monday to say that the proposed visit had been called off.

"No reasons were given," Jayakumar told IANS.

The visit had generated a lot of interest in industry circles, hopeful that it would boost investments into the state.

"Maybe no investment from China would have come here, but we were hoping to open up business opportunities in IT in China because of the huge potential there," said the manager of an IT company at Technopark.

The top-level delegation included Chinese Ambassador to India Hua Junduo, Director General of Asia Department Fu Ying and Director General of Policy Study Department Cui Tiantai.

The two-day visit to the state was a purely private one. The delegation visited the famed Padmanabhapuram Palace in Kanyakumari, a beach village at Veli here and stayed at the Kovalam beach before returning to Delhi Monday evening.
