He was particularly interested to see the automotive projects which had led on from the work viewed on his earlier visit to WMG in 2004 and he saw the impact of our research work across a number of sectors.

Following the tour he took part in an in-depth round table discussion led by Professor Thrift (University Vice-Chancellor) and Professor Lord Bhattacharyya (Director of WMG) focusing on industry training and Research and Development in the West Midlands and opportunities in international tertiary education.
