UK companies are invited to participate in the UK-China Urbanisation Platform, a joint initiative to be launched in late July between the UK and Chinese governments to enhance cooperation, accelerate information dissemination and knowledge exchange, and forge or strengthen partnerships between the academic and business communities working in the urbanisation sector.
What is the Urbanisation Platform?
This platform has been developed against the backdrop of a Memorandum of Understanding between the UK’s Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on sustainable urbanisation signed in 2014.  
Objective: The platform aims to provide an interactive hub where the comprehensive UK offer for sustainable urbanisation can be brought directly to the key decision-makers, influencers and practitioners in China’s urbanisation market, particularly in the areas of city and city-cluster development, smart cities and integrated urban planning.
Delivery Method: The China Centre for Urban Development (CCUD), China’s leading agency for urban development, will manage the platform in consultation with British Embassy Beijing, guided by the NDRC and DCLG.
The platform features:
  • Communication – a digital platform to promote UK expertise and business offers; and a monthly newsletter to increase the UK’s visibility to Chinese businesses, academia, and policy makers;   
  • Information – a database of UK experts and businesses for wider access by Chinese businesses, academia, and policy makers;   
  • Interaction – to facilitate interaction between urbanisation stakeholders from the two countries, leading to matched needs, interests and expertise in the themed areas, providing opportunities for experts from UK cities and businesses to be aware of and participate in events and missions organised by CCUD at both municipal and central levels.
