Zhuhai, Zhongshan and Jiangmen are attracting more investment opportunities from British companies according to British Consul-General in Guangzhou Alastair Morgan, who led a business mission to visit these three cities from March 28 to 30.

The mission follows a western PRD tour organized by the Guangdong Foreign Affairs Office last June. The 13 British companies who participated in this mission came from industries such as infrastructure and transportation, construction and design as well as professional services. Workshops with mayors and related governmental departments of the three visited cities were also held.

Morgan told that Zhuhai, Zhongshan and Jiangmen have great potential for investment thanks to newly completed projects such as the high speed trains to Guangzhou and road construction. British architectural firm Sparch has already launched an architectural project in Zhongshan, and ARUP is involved in the projects linked to the bridge connecting Zhuhai and Macao.

Officials from Cambridge ESOL, which does language testing for universities in the UK, said that Jiangmen is their biggest source of applicants. Representatives from Fosroc, a world class chemical solution provider to the construction industry, said they are considering new opportunities in the three cities as well.

揥e would certainly welcome opportunities of cooperation with companies in China and are confident that the outcome would enhance China's ever-growing stature in the world and be successful and mutually beneficial," said Nicky Chow, Director of Opfer Logan Architects (UK), who joined the west PRD mission.

During the mission, Zhongshan officials mapped out their industrial Zone Plan while Zhuhai officials made full use of the Delta Bridge and General Aviation Manufacturing Base. Jiangmen officials said the city is attracting large projects and enterprises.

Fosroc representative Whitney Liu said that he was impressed by the large projects in the PRD and that Fosroc is willing to launch cooperation projects in Jiangmen and Zhuhai.

Tom Carver from Wragge & Co, a major UK law firm, said that the PRD offers many opportunities for British enterprises to invest in and that his company is establishing an intellectual Property Office in Zhongshan.
