Dear friends,

 

I wanted to share a few photos from an exciting event which we held this afternoon here in the House of Commons.

We brought together Manchester business leaders, academics and politicians with a group of Chinese investors to make the case for further Chinese investment in Manchester.

I chaired the proceedings and we had presentations from a stellar cast of speakers,

–          Lucy Powell MP for Manchester Central

–          Mike Kane MP for Wythenshawe and Sale East

–          Mike Emmerich, Chief Economic Adviser to Greater Manchester Combined Authority

–          Tim Newns, Chief Executive MIDAS

–          Clive Memmott, Chief Executive, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce

–          Lau Yew Cheong, Executive Director, Beijing Construction Engineering Group (BCEG)

–          Rt Hon Hazel Blears MP Salford and Eccles

 

The event was covered by UKJS, a link to the article can be found here.
