Register O’Donnell Hosts Chinese Delegation

Norfolk County Register of Deeds William P. O’Donnell recently hosted a delegation from the Chinese Ministry of Natural Resources, Bureau of Natural Resources Registration. O’Donnell provided the delegation, headed by Yang Zhuhui, Deputy Director of the Bureau of Natural Resources Registration, with an overview of land document recording procedures at the Registry.


 


Commenting on the event, O’Donnell noted, “No matter what the level of government, having an open dialogue with a foreign country improves cooperation and understanding between the parties. As the Bureau of Natural Resources Registration ramps up their land registration system, they hopefully will be helped by what they learned and observed here at the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds when it comes to our best practices.”


 


A lively question and answer session followed with Register O’Donnell and the Chinese delegation. “Some of the questions touched on issues of property ownership, including property development, zoning restrictions and how they affect property development here in the states, and recording of public land documents dealing with highways and water,” noted the Register.


 


At the end of the event, Register O’Donnell, representing the Registry of Deeds and the citizens of Norfolk County, was presented with a gift of Chinese silk tapestry.  Register O’Donnell stated, “I want to thank the Chinese delegation for their kindness in presenting this wonderful gift to Norfolk County. We were honored that they chose to learn from us.  I wish the delegation all the best as they begin the process of creating a land document recording system.”
