Mayor of London Launches First Official Chinese Language Website Promoting London

Visitors can see films of London through the eyes of students, try out new music technology which is changing the world of performing arts, find out more about ground breaking research on disappearing languages or a cure for rabies using tobacco, whilst being mesmerised by a fountain that moves to live sounds from famous London landmarks. There is even a 3-D dinosaur skeleton scan which for the first time reconstructs the evolution of modern birds. Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners, the official promotional organisation for London, said: “London is having a record year. The number of Chinese people visiting us has doubled in just three years, and risen by another third this year alone. More than 90% of Chinese visitors said they felt welcome on their trip to Britain, and 95% said they would recommend a trip to others. We designed to show how London’s attractions, restaurants, shops and great cultural heritage is ready and waiting for them. And this website is just the beginning of our renewed focus on attracting and serving Chinese visitors.” Gary Davies, Chairman of the London Universities International Partnership, said: ‘We are delighted to be creating our first London Showcase in Beijing. The Showcase celebrates the significant achievements of London’s universities by highlighting the range of the world-class teaching and collaborative research taking place in our institutions and demonstrates our growing partnerships with China and with Chinese universities. ‘London is the world’s most multi-cultural city, its diversity gives Chinese students access to an important global network that will last them their lifetime and an international perspective that will be invaluable as they rise up their career ladder.’ Charles Ingrey-Senn, whose innovative pop-up saucepan-lid grip design is featured in the installation, has no doubts that his time in London studying Industrial Design gave him the international perspective vital for his career. He urges others to do the same. He said “For any Chinese graduate, looking to broaden their horizons and to increase their marketability in a very competitive global employment industry, living and studying in such a vibrant and innovative city as London is a must.” Charles, founder of industrial design company Caisdesign, has kept his close connections to London, employing a number of graduates emerging from London as his company expanded and flourished. He is now helping others find internships and employment. The Installation is at the Yang Gallery from Saturday 12th October to Tuesday 15th October. @yahoofinance on Twitter, become a fan on Facebook Related Content Chart Your most recently viewed tickers will automatically show up here if you type a ticker in the “Enter symbol/company” at the bottom of this module.
