Bristol Investment Brochure
In December 2017 the Mayor attended one of the world’s leading business events, the Fortune 500 Forum, which took place in Bristol’s twin city of Guangzhou, China.
Marvin Rees showcased Bristol’s various investment opportunities and strengthened commercial, educational and cultural ties with Bristol’s sister city in China.
The Mayor joined leaders and CEOs of the US and China’s largest companies and key government departments at the international event where he was asked to contribute to a discussion alongside other global mayors on the subject of innovation. The Mayor also met with Guangzhou’s mayor, representatives from the British Consulate and Department for International Trade, as well as potential investors to discuss key development opportunities in Bristol.
Projects under discussion included the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone and the Western Harbour site, as well as aspirations for a Bristol underground system. Also on the agenda were key growth areas in innovation, energy and housing construction.
This brochure, produced by Invest Bristol and Bath, supported these discussions with examples of projects for investment.
