Officials from Jianyang in China visit Charnwood

  • Jianyang visit July 2018

Charnwood was pleased to host a delegation of officials from the People's Government of Jianyang recently. 

The Mayor of Jianyang and four other senior officials were finding out about Charnwood, our economy, and opportunities for links between businesses here and in China. During their stay the Chinese delegation visited Charnwood Campus, Loughborough University Science and Enterprise Park, Loughborough College, 3M and East Midlands Airport. 

On arrival, the delegation was met and welcomed by Borough Council Leader CllrJonathan Morgan. During a morning session of talks, the delegation heard a presentation on the Charnwood economy and why Charnwood is a prime location for business and innovation. The Mayor of Jianyang then showed a video of Jianyang and spoke about their plans for future development and investment. 

The short visit laid the foundations for exploring potential further links between Charnwood and jianyang that would encourage trade links and benefits for businesses looking to export or attract investment.
