Sunderland Software Centre boss set to join David Cameron’s China delegation

Have your say

SUNDERLAND’S £10million Software centre could be set to benefit from Prime Minister David Cameron’s trip to China.

The chief executive of Sunderland’s Software City, David Dunn, will join representatives of companies such as Rolls-Royce, BP, Barclays, HSBC, GlaxoSmithKline and Virgin on the PM’s trade mission to the Far east.

The invitation is a recognition of the work the initiative does to promote the region internationally and help North-East businesses become globally successful.

During the visit, Mr Dunn will unveil details of a special package it is hoped will persuade up to 15 Chinese companies, looking to establish a European base, to use the Software Centre.
