Promotional video shows Chinese scenes of Macomb County

Colorful scenes of Lake St. Clair and Partridge Creek mall and Stony Creek Metropark are playing on computer screens across China as Macomb County ratchets up its bid to tap into the world’s fastest-growing economy.

Videos showcasing Macomb County are now available on the popular Chinese version of YouTube, known as Youku. If only a tiny portion of Youku users click on the Macomb offerings, the county’s promotional efforts aimed at tourists could cash in.
