Elsewhere, trade and investment minister Francis Maude has provided assistance to guide Hucheng around the HS2 development at Curzon Street in Birmingham.“The Midlands is home to some of the most innovative and exciting companies and universities in the country, and we are keen to get more investment into the region to boost jobs and growth for the Midlands Engine,” said Maude. Business contracts to be signed include: • Introducing House of Fraser and Hamleys department stores into Xuzhou Sanpower Plaza Complex Project in China. • Developing the Sino-UK cultural and creative industrial park to enhance cooperation between China and the UK for creative projects. • Nottingham and sister city of Ningbo in China signing a five-year deal to become the first UK and Chinese authorities to develop closer trade and civic ties. The move would support Midlands companies to forge trade and export opportunities in China.
