Chinese visitors learn from the Peterborough story

A delegation of senior Chinese civil servants has been in Peterborough to learn how the city has planned and managed its expansion over the past 30 years and to see current development work taking place.

The delegation was led by Hu Chun Zi, director general of the Chinese Ministry of Land and Resources and Li Zhijian, deputy director general of the ministry's Department of International Co-operation, Science and Technology. 

Their tour of Peterborough - organised by Greater Peterborough Investment Agency (GPIA) - included lunch with the mayor, talks by representatives of GPIA and the developers of Hampton, and a visit to the Hampton township.

Steve Beresford of the GPIA said: "There is a great deal of development taking place in China and our visitors are responsible for planning and co-ordinating many large projects. We hope their visit to Peterborough will open trade links, providing opportunities for local firms to assist with these projects, and help to put Peterborough on the international map."

The tour of Peterborough was part of a series of visits organised by the Cambridge International Land Institute. During their stay in the UK the delegation will sign a deal for a three-year programme of training for senior valuers and land administrators from Beijing and other major cities which will involve dozens of Chinese officials visiting Peterborough.
