We are absolutely thrilled that in our first year of operation we have been recognised for our investment and commitment in our site in Leeds. OSO Polymers have been announced the winners of the Chinese Investment award at the Leeds City Region Chinese New Year Celebration and China Business Awards.
The awards were held at the Carriageworks in Leeds on Tuesday 21 January 2020 and were hosted by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership in partnership with the Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds and Visit Leeds. The Chinese Investment Award celebrates Chinese businesses who have chosen to invest in the Leeds City Region. The winners of these awards showcased their new operations and the partnerships they have developed with other local organisations in Leeds City Region.
The Leeds City Region Chinese New Year Celebration and China Business Awards were an opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of businesses and organisations in the region to develop links with the China market, and also to bring people together to share their knowledge and experiences.
The Chinese Investment Awards were presented by Dr Giles Blackburne, Executive Director of the Business Confucius Institute at the University of Leeds, who presented OSO Polymers Managing Director Tong Shen with the award. Zheng Xiyuan, Consul General of The People’s Republic of China in Manchester, Roger Marsh OBE, Chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, and Cllr Judith Blake, Leader of Leeds City Council, were all in attendance to lead the celebrations.
The awards are an opportunity to showcase the exciting China partnerships which exist and demonstrate the scale and breadth of China-related activity across the city region. The awards were open to any individual, company or organisation that has made a significant contribution to developing business links or partnerships with the China-market which may include export, investment or an initiative which has had a social impact.
