“There has long existed a network of cultural and trade relationships between East and West, but we are currently witnessing a significant bonding between the United Kingdom and China, where both cultures advance through mutual support. It is only through shared vision, cooperation and collaboration that we advance as humans.”

                                       ——Paul Max Edlin
