Twinned Cities e-book coverThe Conference on UK-China Twinned Cities provides an excellent opportunity to learn how twinning can be a channel for increasing trade and investment and help create new jobs for regional cities.

Authors Carl Carlstedt and Chris Georgiou will present their research findings that with the right local infrastructure and commitment from stakeholders, twinning can yield many benefits.

Eminent speakers include Jeremy Browne MP, former Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Claire Urry from CBBC and representatives from the Chinese Embassy and Local Government.

Network and share experiences as well as best practice with other delegates from different local authoriities, and from both Chinese and British companies.

You can choose sessions on topics ranging from "Forging Educational Links", to "Finding the Right Partners" for practical ideas on how to overcome challenges to successful twinning.

The event has been jointly organised by Chinese Liberal Democrats and the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies of The Nottingham University and supported by China Britain Business Council.

Tickets at £35 per person cover an administrative fee and includes a free copy of the UK China Twinned Cities book and lunch.
