Liverpool China Partnership has announced a new board of directors and outlined its strategic objectives for the next 18 months.

It is a membership organisation that facilitates relationships between China and the UK for civic and business people and partnerships, opening up opportunities for its members.

Chaired by Liverpool-based property professional, Paul Kallee-Grover, the new board is made up of directors and representatives from across academia and the private and public sectors.

Former deputy mayor of Liverpool, Gary Millar, has also been appointed as the new president of the partnership. Together, the board will implement a renewed drive to maximise outbound activity to China from the Liverpool city region.

It also aims to participate in and maximise inbound opportunities for tour operators and overseas students and maximise the potential for incoming Chinese investment, as well as launch a drive to attract new members.

Paul Kallee-Grover said: “Our new board of directors is made up of the very best in their respective fields, and bring with them a fresh outlook that will help us grow the organisation over the coming years. I also think the timing is pertinent with the need for an organisation such as Liverpool China Partnership being greater than ever.

“We will support our members in seizing the opportunities presented by Liverpool city region’s new Freeport status, help them navigate the ongoing challenges to international trade as a result of Brexit and the pandemic, and inform them of the global work being done to mitigate the effects of climate change.

The new board of directors is:

  • Chair – Paul Kallee-Grover, group planning director at the Leith Group.
  • President – Gary Millar.
  • Thomas Camilleri, CEO and founder at Global School Alliance.
  • Mi Tang, head of China Affairs at Liverpool City Council.
  • Julia Wang, deputy director of international relations at Liverpool John Moores University.
  • Dr Xiaofeng Wu, international partnerships manager (East Asian) at University of Liverpool.
  • James Wood, marketing campaign manager at Marketing Liverpool.
  • Maggie Zhang, China Affairs co-ordinator at Liverpool City Council.
