Messages from our Chairman & President
It has been a huge privilege to spearhead the Liverpool China Partnership since being elected to the role of Chair in September 2019. Having been involved in the Partnership since its inception in 2015, it is wonderful to see how the organisation has evolved to offer a more diverse and inclusive offering to our members to expand, strengthen and deliver greater benefit from the Liverpool City Region links with China.
My first formal engagement with China was through the City of Liverpool showcase at the World Expo in Shanghai in 2010 and I have been fortunate to work and visit many regions and cities across China since then.
I have been a passionate supporter of the the Liverpool China Partnership since its formation in 2015 - a legacy borne out of the UK's International Business Festival. My own experience, officially leading many delegations to China and using those links to attract over 200 Chinese delegations to the UK, plus some significant investments here into Liverpool, highlights just how our effective and pioneering our team work has been.
It has been recognised that we have helped create strong friendships and outstanding mutual cooperation between our two great countries. Our networks are extensive and our connections the envy of other global cities.
So, if you are serious about your intentions in China please join us today. As a result we hope by us working together we can you make new friends and perhaps create some really exciting opportunities, whilst hopefully shortening your route to market.
