China, UK urged to step up in­ter­city al­liances

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Chi­nese and British cities should ex­pand their co­op­er­a­tion to bet­ter tap op­por­tu­ni­ties from the na­tion’s Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive, city of­fi­cials from both sides said at an event in Bei­jing on Wednes­day. The an­nual event was jointly held by the China Cen­ter for Ur­ban Devel­op­ment and the Ur­ban-EU-China project team of the Eu­ro­pean Union. Wuhan, cap­i­tal of Hubei prov­ince and Manch­ester in the UK were rec­og­nized for their ef­forts in pro­mot­ing in­ter­city co­op­er­a­tion. Joanne Roney, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Manch­ester Mu­nic­i­pal­ity, said that the 32-year­long co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two cities should be re­garded as a good ex­am­ple for in­ter­city co­op­er­a­tion.
