ICCIC Delegation visits London and Manchester

September 26 - September 29

The 8- person delegation from the ICCIC (International Committee for the Promotion of Chinese Cooperatives), led by Michael Crook, will be here for a short visit from Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th September.

 

All SACU members are welcome to join us.

 

The outline programme is as follows:

Wednesday 26th September: arrive Heathrow, early evening

Thursday 27th September: visit to Harpenden and St George’s School (George Hogg’s former school) and then on to the Needham Research Institute in Cambridge, then evening journey to Manchester

Friday 28th September: day in Manchester, returning in the evening to London. Evening dinner at 8.00pm for the delegation and SACU friends at the President Hotel, 56-60 Guilford Street, London WC1 1DB

Saturday 29th September: afternoon visit to Oxford then on to Heathrow for flight back to Beijing

 

This will be a great opportunity to meet ICCIC members who have exceptional experience in organising self-help activities and training in cooperative business in the poorer rural areas of China. It will also be a chance to learn more about new developments in the latest reforms to ‘revitalise the rural areas’.

SACU's relationship with them through the George Hogg Education Fund is explained on our website at: http://sacu.org.uk/george-hogg-fund/

 

Any SACU members or anyone with an interest in the mission of the ICCIC can email Ros Wong, Programme Co-ordinator, events@sacu.org.uk and Ros will keep you informed of arrangements.
