Description

Movement Matters | A new horizon – Manchester/Beijing connectivity
11 October 2017, 4.00pm-6.00pm
Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3JL, Manchester

International connectivity, and the trade it enables, is key to the economic performance of city regions. The greater the global connectivity between cities, the stronger the potential for enhanced wealth creation and economic growth.

This seminar will consider how the direct Manchester-Beijing flight route is acting as a catalyst for growth and resilience, and explore the impacts of this new horizon for Greater Manchester and the wider North.

Our specially-selected expert panel will discuss the various ways in which this direct connectivity can lead to broader, sustained economic benefits, including the associated infrastructural investment, added value to the skills and knowledge base and enhanced trade performance.

Speakers
Adam Jupp, Head of External Affairs, Manchester Airport Group
Marian Sudbury, Director, Global Operations, Northern Powerhouse – Exports and Investment, Department for International Trade
Richard Cotton, Director of Student Recruitment and Outreach, University of Manchester
Rhys Whalley, Executive Director, Manchester China Forum
Peter Chi, Finance Director, Beijing Construction Engineering Group
