Sir John Peace, Midlands Engine Chairman, is urging regional companies to join November’s Midlands Engine market visit to the China International Industry Fair. With a fantastic programme on offer and the UK taking centre stage as this year’s Country of Honour at the exhibition, this is an ideal and high profile opportunity for any companies in the manufacturing sector looking at China. Speaking about the market visit, Sir John Peace highlighted the importance of China to the Midlands region:

"Increasing trade and attracting investment is one of the ways the Midlands Engine will boost economic growth in the region.
China is already a key and growing market for many Midlands businesses and offers great potential for many more.
I’m delighted that I will be joining the DIT Midlands Engine mission to the China International Industry Fair in November and I urge businesses seeking to maximise the potential of the Chinese opportunity to come with us.
The China International Industry Fair, a major event and showcase for Chinese manufacturers, is huge. The venue is about five times the size of the NEC.

This year the UK is the Country of Honour and on Wednesday the 8th of November DIT’s UK stand will celebrate Midlands Day and I will launch the Midlands Engine China Strategy.

I do hope to see you there."
