A high profile delegation from Mainland China and Hong Kong visited ABP London to find out more about the latest developments with the project as it is one of the biggest Chinese private investment in the UK. This was the first government-led delegation visit from China Mainland and HK since construction began in earnest at Royal Albert Dock.
Led by Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China and Hong Kong Trade Development Council with the support of Ministry of Commerce and China International Contractors Association, the Mainland-Hong Kong Joint Investment & Partnership Mission aims to explore the infrastructure investment and partnership opportunities in London under the ‘Belt and Road’ Initiative to promote trade and investment worldwide.
The ABP Royal Albert Dock development has been widely considered as a signature project fostering the Sino-British relationship at the European end of the ‘Belt and Road’ journey, and therefore was included in the packed itinerary alongside other high level business meetings.
The CEO of ABP London, Nancy Xu and COO John Miu met the delegation and explained to them about the overall regeneration and infrastructure development in Royal Docks and the masterplan of the project.
Delegates were drawn from construction, engineering, banking and legal service backgrounds.
