The 4th CBBC China Outbound Conference

Shanghai, 3 November 2016

New opportunities for Chinese investors in the UK 

Following the highly successful visit of President Xi Jinping to the UK last year, British companies, cities and regions are now seeking more substantive, long term engagement with China. With China’s foreign direct investment continuing to increase year on year, the potential for cooperation is better than ever. UK advantages include a strong and vibrant economy, world class research and innovation capabilities, along with sector strengths that match China’s needs. Together, these have made the UK China’s favoured investment destination in Europe.

Last year’s CBBC China Outbound Conference in Beijing attracted some 500 delegates and showcased more than 100 UK investment projects. CBBC’s 4th China Outbound conference will take place in Shanghai on 3 November 2016. Delegates at this year’s conference will enjoy updates on investment policies from senior members of the Chinese and UK governments, find out about new trends and opportunities in key sectors and learn from case studies of leading Chinese businesses investing in the UK. 

There will also be ample opportunity for networking and to discuss the real investment projects featured in CBBC’s latest China Outbound Investment Project Catalogue.
