Statement: UK-China Regional Leaders Summit postponed

Date posted: January 29, 2020

It is with deep regret that Midlands Engine and partners in the UK and China announce that the Fifth UK-China Regional Leaders Summit, which was due to take place in Birmingham from 17-19 February 2020, has been postponed.

This decision has been taken following extensive discussions and consultation with government departments in the UK and China, in light of events unfolding with respect to the Coronavirus.

Our thoughts and sympathy are with close friends and valued colleagues in China who are affected by this. Discussions are underway to reschedule the postponed Summit and we will issue further updates in due course.
