On Monday 7th April I was asked to be part of a welcoming party for the Mayor of Ji'an and his delegates. It was their first time to the UK and Gloucester welcomed them in to their historic docks to begin talks about the history of Gloucester, it's developing and thriving businesses, and how we may be able to work together in the future to create opportunities for the people of Gloucester as well as for the people of Ji'an.
The talks went very smoothly, and then the Mayor invited me to dinner with himself and his esteemed colleagues later that day; I was happy that I'd made a good impression at the talks and that they wanted to see me again. Who knows? Perhaps a performance in Ji'an could be on the cards for the future?!
