Prime Minister opens 5th CBBC China Business Conference

Tuesday, 28 March 2017 - Honoured to have the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Theresa May MP, opened our China Business Conference in London. A positive message for UK-China trade and investment.

On 28th March, over 400 delegates from the UK and China attended the 5th China Business Conference, the leading annual China business event in the UK, organised by the China-Britain Business Council.

Against the backdrop of Brexit, China and the UK have the unprecedented opportunity to develop an even closer trading relationship. This year’s conference developed in this special context, with sessions on everything from equipping new entrants to the Chinese market, to examining the attractiveness of the UK as a destination for Chinese investment, to exploring specific marketing trends in digital and innovation in China and much more.
