Chief Representative to China Liu Ning’s presentations were received with great interest by both attending companies and urban planning officials.

The Infrastructure & Property Forum is of relevance and interest to members in the construction industry including architects, engineers, planners, contractors, developers, investors, brokers and other consultants. This multi-disciplinary forum is intended as a meeting point, discussion group and business advancement source, as well as an education and career development environment for experienced professionals. This includes those from the full range of disciplines, trades and sectors related to the construction and real estate value chain industry.
The objective of the forum is to provide a platform to deliver information focusing on the construction and real estate industries, thus serving an area in which British companies and individuals excel globally, and helping them create opportunities to interact with and deepen their knowledge of the China construction and real estate sector.
Specifically, the forum aims to: 
  • disseminate UKTI updates and news of relevant VIP visits and other UKTI developments in this sector;
  • provide a point of liaison with the Chinese authorities regarding the construction industry;
  • provide Chinese companies intending to invest in the UK with the opportunity to interact with British professionals.

The forum is chaired by Chas Pope (Arup) and Henry Yang (Haskoll).
