Dear friends,


I wanted to share a few photos from an exciting event which we held this afternoon here in the House of Commons.

We brought together Leeds business leaders, academics and politicians with a group of Chinese investors to make the case for further Chinese investment in Leeds.

I chaired the proceedings and we had presentations from a stellar cast of speakers,

-          Hilary Benn MP for Leeds Central    

-          Fabian Hamilton MP for Leeds North East

-          Rachel Reeves MP for Leeds West

-          Eric Hawthorn, LEP Board Member and Managing Director, Radio Design Ltd

-          Lurene Joseph, Chief Executive, Leeds and Partners
