chinese_premier_09Chinese delegates visited Liverpool last week ahead of Liverpool’s exhibition in the Urban Best Practice Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010.

The chief planner of the World Expo site was amongst the delegates, along with the chief planner of the Urban Best Practice Pavilion. The delegation was met by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr. Steve Rotherham, Liverpool City Council leaders Warren Bradley and Mike Storey, and a number of other high level members of Liverpool’s civic and business communities.

The delegates were given a tour of the city, which included the Albert Dock and Liverpool One, before being taken to the university to view a student exhibition showcasing potential designs for Liverpool’s place at the World Expo. The party then moved on to the town hall for a drinks reception.

The purpose of the visit was to reinforce Liverpool’s commitment to strong relations between China and the UK – a message which was reinforced in London by the visit of Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao to hold talks with Gordon Brown about increasing trade between the UK and China (pictured above).
