Chinese technology businesses are looking for UK partners to establish research and innovation partnerships in the world’s second largest economy.

A delegation of six Chinese technology businesses from Guangdong Province – China’s most populous province – as well as the region’s Department of Science and Technology will be visiting Lancaster University this month.

The visit forms part of the Lancaster China Catalyst Programme, a large-scale business-engagement programme designed by the university to enhance UK links with China and boost international trade and business growth.

Lancashire companies are invited to a special showcase event, Driving UK-China Innovation, on Tuesday, December 16.

Nick Burd, director of the Lancaster China Catalyst Programme, said: “The visit of Chinese companies to Lancaster follows on from a recent trip to Guangdong involving UK companies that led to some very promising partnership discussions.

“This visit of Chinese companies is a great opportunity for UK firms interested in growing their businesses through links to the Far East.”
