Secretary of State of International Trade, Dr Liam Fox, with ABP Director of Global Communications, Neil Robinson and CEO of Tian An Cyber Park Group Sunny Tao had a private meeting during the GREAT Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong.
Tian An promised to bring dozens of companies from Shenzhen to jointly create the East London Tech Hub at Royal Albert Dock this summer. Dr Fox promised the UK Government will give support to ensure the Tech Hub is a success. He said: “This co-operation between ABP and Tian An is exactly what is needed to develop the Tech industry.”
Sunny Tao said: “We are already in Paris working with tech companies and we must expand into the UK which is why our relationship with ABP is so important and the Royal Albert Dock is a perfect location. I would like London to open a branch of the East London Tech hub in Shenzhen.”
Neil Robinson said: “The first phase of our development at Royal Albert Dock will be ready within a year and we already have space for tech companies from both Asia and the UK. Royal Albert Dock will see London’s new tech community.”
