Local partnership launched to develop trade between Birmingham and China

Birmingham Airport and MG Motor UK today entered into
a formal corporate partnership which demonstrates their
long term commitment to the development of trade
between the West Midlands region and China
At the launch event held at Birmingham Airport, both
parties highlighted the need for a direct air link to China,
and showcased several new MG6 cars on the airfield as
well as unveiling an MG Motor UK branded airbridge
Speaking at the launch event, Paul Kehoe, CEO of Birmingham
Airport, said, "As we embark on our runway extension project
next year, we’re keen to hear from, and work with, businesses
that would benefit from a direct air link"
"This is particularly vital for MG Motor UK, whose parent
company is Shanghai based, SAIC Motor; the eighth largest
automotive manufacturer in the world"
William Wang, MD of MG Motor UK, said, "Like Birmingham
Airport, SAIC motor’s business is in an exciting period of
international growth. As the proud owners of the world famous
MG brand, SAIC Motor has made significant investment to make
Birmingham the global home of the brand, SAIC group’s
European engineering centre of excellence and most recently
a manufacturing and sales centre for our new MG6 vehicles"
The strength of commitment between the Birmingham region
and China was most clearly demonstrated by the visit of Chinese
Premier Wen Jiabao to Birmingham in summer 2011 - for a
