The council has signed a 'Memorandum of Understanding’ with the Chinese city, enabling them to share ideas and collaborate in a range of different fields. The agreement is hoped to lead to a City Partnership between the two.

Leader of Wolverhampton Council, cllr Roger Lawrence, said: ‘There are common threads that tie our two cities together and we look forward to forging a strong partnership based on mutual understanding, cooperation and support.
