Sustainable building and environmental technologies in China and the South West was the subject of the latest Pow Wow networking opportunity organised by the Bristol and West of England China Bureau. Guest speaker was Barry Wilson, Chair for the British Chambers of Commerce in Guangdong, who offered latest insight into the state of sustainable development in China and particularly across the Pearl River Delta region.
The West Country perspective was presented by Robert Delius of leading UK Architecture practice Stride Treglown. The event – held in conjunction with Low Carbon South West - promoted the development of environmental technologies and services in Bristol, Bath and South and West England and was sponsored by Hewlett Rand – specialists in digital learning and training strategies. Richard Lowe, Director of Business Initiatives said: “I was delighted Barry Wilson could join us from China as our guest to offer up to the minute insight into the China’s sustainable building landscape. “News of plans to develop twenty or more mega cites with a population of some fifty million in population were particularly eye opening and we are thrilled to announce a new partnership between our organisations.”
Book now for our next Pow Wow on December 1, which will be hosted by Barclays Bank at their Business Centre at Finzels Reach. This networking event will be themed around local Food and Beverage exporters to China who will share their stories and insights. A good pre-Christmas warm-up!
