CHINESE trade links with the Humber have been furthered after a mission was welcomed from Qingdao. 

A delegation of government officials were greeted at the Guildhall in Hull, before heading to Modal Training at Immingham, where they were shown around the state-of-the-art simulator suites.

Kishor Tailor, chief executive of Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “We were delighted to welcome the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, Qingdao to the region. The Humber was selected by the delegation as one of two locations to visit while in the UK due to its world class capabilities in offshore wind and the wider marine sector. "It was our aim to facilitate and encourage trade and investment between Qingdao and Humber.”

The event organised by RTC North and the Enterprise Europe Network in cooperation with the Chinese EU Project Innovation Center (EUPIC), and enabled UK businesses to personally meet Chinese counterparts to establish collaboration in the maritime industry.

Phil Glover hosted the delegation. He said: "The opportunities for Humber businesses to trade with China are significant particularly in offshore wind where Qingdao is playing a leading role. We understand that our guests from Qingdao enjoyed their visit."
