Press release from: The China-U.K

As it prepares for overseas trade visits to China in August and September, The China-U.K. Business Centre, based in Lancaster House Blackpool, is offering support to companies across Blackpool. Fylde and Wyre who want to find out more about the opportunities available to them.

Building on the trade links established earlier in the year, with a delegation from a Chinese Province, the size of the UK, The China-U.K. Business Centre is looking to establish further connections with a number of Chinese provinces who have expressed an interest in investing in the North West. To put things in perspective population-wise, there are over 23 ‘UK’s’ in one China!

Comments CEO Barrie Thompson, “This is definitely an exciting time for Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre as the initial interest we are receiving from China is extremely promising for the region. Back in March, the first trade agreement with the Chinese Province was signed and now, just 4 months later we are in the latter stages of agreeing manufacturing and licensing agreements for our region. We have been invited back to China later this month to discuss further initiatives and new product lines with this company for launch in mid-2017.

“Throughout my sixteen years experience in dealing with China, in the trading, education and manufacturing sectors, I can honestly say I have never seen such enthusiasm for developing new trade links with the North West. The last few months especially have been a whirlwind for The China-U.K. Business Centre, so we are already making plans to increase our office space!

“To make the most of our business trips to China in August and September we are inviting local companies to contact us with their enquiries or requirements so we can investigate further and report back later upon our return to local government. We are of course happy to sign non-disclosure agreements and MOU’s with any company wanting to dip their toe in the water with China. We base our business and personal values on transparency, confidentiality, honesty and trust.

“We have a VIP visit from China already planned for October, and are delighted to have the renewed support from Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde councils. The initiatives and investment deals offered by the Councils to overseas companies looking to invest in the three Enterprise zones are without doubt a major incentive to Chinese companies”

Any company based in Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre who would like to discuss possibilities of dealing with China is invited to contactBarrie Thompson , Carole Houston at The China-U.K. Business Centre by email on or by telephone on 07957 635015. Or, text : #ASK to +44 [0]7903 157250.
