The China Opportunity in Technology:
The UK is the technology capital of Europe, generating more output and attracting more technology-driven investment than any other European country. It is well-known as the leading global centre of innovation for big data analytics and AI, while London is a leading global centre for fintech innovation. All of this is of interest to Chinese investors and companies, especially in those areas where there is a technology gap between China and the UK.
