Contribution of Chinese community to the local economy

William Liu, a graduate of Lancaster University with two MA degrees, one in Sociology and one in Social Statistics, has recently carried out a pilot research project into the contribution of the Chinese community in Greater Manchester to the economy and society of the area.

The intention is that this will be a pilot for a later study into their contribution to the UK as a whole.

The Northwest Regional Development Agency provided financial support and assistance with access to local organisations. The project has also been funded by the LCMC and has been supervised by Professor Alasdair MacBean.
