Chartered surveyor Phil Gibbs joined the Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission to Malaysia and Singapore representing Gibbs Investment, the investment brand of North-West property agents P R Gibbs & Co.
The trade mission was fronted by UK Prime Minister David Cameron and Business Secretary Sajid Javid and only 50 delegates were selected to join them on this high profile visit. With investment and development opportunities picking up in the UK Mr Cameron said:
“The government is committed to ensuring the UK’s northern regions play their part in rebalancing our economy. With so much untapped potential, I’m delighted to be part of this first Northern Powerhouse trade mission – the first of what I hope will be many.”
As well as the foreign inward investment growth for the firm, this has been a great year so far for the P R Gibbs team, passing the ISO Quality Standards for the 9th year running!
“It is very satisfying that we are being rewarded for something we’ve been dedicated to from the start. We feel this achievement shows that we are committed to the highest standards of service,” said Phil Gibbs, Gibbs Investment chairman.
P R Gibbs & Co and Gibbs Investment have reported a very good summer of trading as sales and investment enquiries have picked up significantly. They are continuously increasing on a good stock of investment properties and development sites and adding to a large database of contacts.
With a number of sites in the North of England that they can put to potential developers, P R Gibbs and Co Ltd are steadily increasing the number of enquiries and deals through new contacts looking for opportunities in the UK.
The robust demand from Chinese real estate investors and developers, looking to invest in the UK property market, has very significantly driven the business expansion of Gibbs Investment.
After Malaysia and Singapore, Phil continued his business tour into Hong Kong and mainland China with Lyslee Li from Gibbs Investment, where they met with several companies planning to invest in the UK. In order to meet increasing demand from investors in China, Gibbs Investment has recruited two Chinese nationals, one based in China and one at the company’s UK offices in Greater Manchester.
