Wayne Thomas, Nancy Hai and Nicola Thomas from West Midlands-based legal firm Thomas Guise, attended a Networking Reception on 12th June welcoming a senior Chinese Delegation who were visiting the West Midlands.

The Party Secretary of Guangdong Province and the Mayor of Guangzhou City led a business delegation to Birmingham.  It included companies from the Automotive, Advanced Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical and Infrastructure sectors. 
Guangzhou is a significant city in China, ranked as its third largest in population terms. Around 13 million people call the city home.
The event was hosted by Birmingham City Council and the Department of International trade at Austin Court.  Birmingham’s relationship with Guangzhou began formally in 2006 and there is a strong programme of cooperation and work between the two cities. 
Wayne Thomas, Director said “The event gave local businesses and professionals the opportunity to make new contacts and discuss professional partnerships.  We found it to be of particular benefit to strengthen our existing relationships with the Chinese businesses”.
Thomas Guise is active in promoting inward investment and helps overseas companies with their legal needs, whether it is negotiating contracts with UK companies, acquiring commercial property or dealing with visa issues.
