On the second day of their visit, representatives from Hunan province in China visited the Engineering Hub at the University of Lincoln before signing a formal declaration of economic collaboration with Lincolnshire County Council on Friday September 11.
As previously reported, it is hoped that the deal will provide an opportunity for further international economic development for Lincolnshire businesses.
Yesterday, the visitors took a tour of Lincoln Castle and the David Ross Magna Carta Vault as well as the Usher Gallery on Lindum Hill.
Hunan is home to more than 65 million people, and its economy is worth more than £200 billion per year.
Qiu Dinggao, Secretary General Office Director, believes that there are many similarities between Lincolnshire and Hunan that will allow growth potential in the county as well as a range of other opportunities for both areas.
