Stuart Garner, the boss of new Marketing Derby Bondholder, Norton Motorcycles, is one of the selected business leaders traveling with Theresa May to China this week.
Stuart has rebuilt the classic British brand becoming a major exporter to many markets, including China. He is also an Export Champion for the Midlands Engine.
"It was a surprise and honour to be invited on this trip and Norton have serious plans to extend our reach in China and other markets" Stuart commented.
Last year the Castle Donington HQ'd company announced a 20-year Design and Licence agreement with Zongshen Manufacturing in Chongqing as part of their growth plans.
The Prime Minister's trip is her first to the world's largest economy and is aimed at boosting trade and investment links to "intensify the golden era in UK-China relations".
She will meet with President Xi Jinping in Beijing as well as visiting Wuhan.
"I'll be deepening co-operation with China on key global and economic issues' she said.
