MASTER CUTLER’S TRADE MISSION TO BOCHUM BEGINS – 07.03.24

The Master Cutler and the delegation from Sheffield kick off the Trade Mission to Sheffield’s twinned city of Bochum.  
 
The visit encompasses Civic, Economic and Academic connections, representatives from Sheffield University and business are also part of the delegation, aiming to further collaborations. 

Thursday 7th March

Earlier today, the Master Cutler and the delegation from Sheffield met with Bochum Mayor Thomas Eiskirch and his team to discuss investment and cooperation opportunities between the two cities.

Sheffield is Bochum’s first twinned city since 1950, and the delegation is working to lay the groundwork for the 75th anniversary of the twinning next year. A good twinning links civil, academic and economic benefit in a reciprocal arrangement, which exists between Sheffield and Bochum making it a valuable partnership.
