Ministerial team strengthen ties in China

The second day of the ministerial visit to China didn't produce any new deals but did see the First Minister Peter Robinson and deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness visit one of China's top universities to see how science and technology collaborations have strengthened ties between our universities.

They, along with Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster and Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill, are on a six-day visit to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Shenyang. With Martin McGuinness and Peter Robinson are Professor Weidong Chen (head of Joint Laboratory at Shanghai Jiaotong University Science and Research Laboratory) and Sean Gorman pro vice chancellor Queen's University alongside 4G the robot.
