    Despite of a busy working schedule, China's Ambassador in the UK, Liu Xiaoming, was present at the "Belt and Road" breakfast meeting of LISW17 to make a toast and speech.  He expected Chinese enterprises could take advantage of UK's position as the global shipping service centre and turn cooperation between the two countries in shipping financing, shipping law, shipping dispute resolution and shipping insurance into new highlights for the "Belt and Road".


    The delegation met LMAA President Ian Gaunt and former president Clive Aston at the Baltimore chamber of shipping and attended the seminar "How does Arbitration Support London" held by LMAA with hundreds of maritime arbitration experts.

    The delegation then visited the world's leading shipbroker and integrated shipping services provider, Clarksons. Stephen Gordon as their Managing Director particularly introduced to the delegation their business in China and made in-depth discussions on how to promote and expand their Chinese market share.

    Thereafter, the delegation participated into the London Chinese Shipping Forum organized by the London Chinese Shipping Association and subsequently visited the ING Bank which has a leading role in ship financing and leasing and the professional law firm, HFW.

    The delegates were further invited to attend the welcome reception hosted by the British government in Lancaster House which was once a royal residence, where they had intimate conversations with the Minister of UK's Department of Transport, John Hayes and the President of UK Shipping Association, David Dingle, and had taken photos with them.

     

     

    The Delegation also partook in the UK International Maritime Xchange hosted by DIT in Somerset House. Doctor Aaron Cai, the Senior Regional City Officer of British Consulate-General Guangzhou made a speech to elaborate how the Regional City Offices of British Embassy and Consulate-General in China promote the UK's maritime and commercial services in China.
