News: Chinese delegation visit AMP in Rotherham


Last week a group of high profile Chinese delegates visited the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham as part of a collaboration between the city of Sheffield and the Chinese cities of Wuhan and Nanjing. The delegation of 12 people was led by Dr. Shi Nan - Secretary General of the Urban Planning Society of China and aims to promote excellence in urban regeneration and the provision of affordable housing. After visiting projects in the city, the group enjoyed a tour of the Advanced Manufacturing Park hosted by Chris Scholey of Renaissance South Yorkshire. The Chinese delegates also gave local businesses the unique opportunity to find out what it takes to break the Chinese market. A seminar was held at the University of Sheffield’s Confucius Institute where Professor Liu Hongyu and Dr. Shi Nan from the delegation briefed the audience on urban regeneration and affordable housing in China. They also outlined the opportunities that exist in China for companies involved in urban development, land reclamation or sustainable engineering. Ian Bromley, Chief Executive at Creativesheffield, said: "These increased connections with China are fast putting Sheffield on the global map. This world-wide interest in Sheffield’s economic and physical development can only bring benefits through an improved city image, increased inward investment, knowledge transfer, global collaborations and trade."
