Milton Keynes could partner with Chinese city after delegation

A delegation from China was in Milton Keynes to look at some of the smart city’s technology, ahead of a potential twinning agreement with a city in the Far East.

The visitors – from the Jinjiang Municipal People’s Government in China – were given a demonstration of the MK:Smart data hub and a tour of the Transport Systems Catapult, as well a number of other talks and tours.

Jinjiang is a Chinese city in Fujian Province, and their delegates are reportedly keen to set up a friendship or twinning arrangement with Milton Keynes.

The meeting would mean the attractiveness of Milton Keynes as a growing hub for business and technology would likely improve even further.

The city is already known for cutting-edge technology because of its pioneering role in developing driverless cars and also for the Open University’s work in the recent Rosetta space program.
