Chinese Embassy strengthens ties with UK business
Representatives from the Chinese Embassy in London visited materials technology specialist TWI in Cambridge, strengthening business ties between the UK and China while also discussing future collaborations.
Chinese Science and Technology Minister Counsellor, Sunan Jiang was joined by first secretaries Ge Tan and Jing Wang, as well as second secretaries Junyao Tan and Huigin Ma and attaché Ke Zhao.
The visit followed UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s recent visit to China as the two nations continue to explore opportunities to build further business ties. That mission brought multimillions of pounds worth of trade to Cambridge companies and enterprises alone.
Sunan Jiang gave a talk on opportunities for collaboration between TWI and Chinese business, while also receiving a tour of the company’s facilities.
While the Chinese Embassy delegates introduced the possibility of future collaborative research, science and technology projects, TWI, in turn, was also able to show what it could offer to the Chinese market.
