Fresh appetite by Chinese to invest in Birmingham says McCourt

A leading developer has said there is a fresh desire by Chinese investors to get involved in Birmingham's commercial property sector. Anthony McCourt, director of Birmingham-based property development firm Court Collaboration, said the resurgence in the market was attracting the interests of foreign investors, with a lot of interest centred on Asia. Speaking at the 2014 West Midlands Chinese Entrepreneurs and Overseas Financial Information Forum, McCourt said: ;There is a real thirst for developments in the Midlands from China and the rest of the Far East at the moment and understandably so. The region has the fastest growing economy of the G20 nations and the West Midlands is now exporting more to China than London for the first time in history.'
