Wirral International Trade Centre deal as part of Wirral Waters
As part of the Wirral Waters project, there will also be a £200 million International Trade Centre built on the docklands in Birkenhead.
Phil Davies, the new Wirral Council Labour leader with Tory, Jeff Green and Tom Harney of the Liberal Democrats, will fly to China today to meet with investors.
The Wirral Waters project is a partnership between Peel Holdings and the Sam Wa Minerals company owned by businesswoman Stella Shui. If the deal is signed, it is thought to be the largest Chinese investment scheme in the UK of this type.
The agreement is set to be signed on Friday in Beijing after the Wirral councillors meet with Chinese representatives and investors from Taicang and Suzhou. Once the joint venture agreement is signed, work is set to start in 2013 on the International Trade Centre, which is expected to bring 3,000 jobs to the Wirral and provide a platform where companies from India, China and South Korea could sell, launch and exhibit their goods in the UK.
Each building in the International Trade Centre will consist of individual showrooms with trade units, storage facilities and an exhibition space.
