Liverpool China Partnership has unveiled a new board of directors and outlined its strategic objectives for the next 18 months.

The membership organisation facilitates relationships between China and the UK for civic and business people and partnerships.

Chaired by Liverpool-based business leader, Paul Kallee-Grover MBE, the new board is made up of directors and representatives from across academia and the private and public sectors.

Former deputy mayor of Liverpool, Gary Millar, has also been appointed as the new president of the partnership.

Together, the board will implement a renewed drive to maximise outbound activity to China from the Liverpool City Region.

Paul Kallee-Grover MBE, chair of Liverpool China Partnership, said: “Our new board of directors is made up of the very best in their respective fields, and bring with them a fresh outlook that will help us grow the organisation over the coming years, both in terms of our membership and our influence on government policy on a regional, national and international stage.

“I also think the timing is pertinent with the need for an organisation like Liverpool China Partnership being greater than ever.

“We will support our members in seizing the opportunities presented by Liverpool City Region’s new Freeport status, help them navigate the ongoing challenges to international trade as a result of Brexit and the pandemic, and inform them of the global work being done to mitigate the effects of climate change.”
