China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) is pleased to invite CBBC members to join a joint delegation of the UK-China CEO Council and CBBC to visit Ningbo and Hangzhou from Tuesday 27th July to Thursday 29th July to strengthen links between the UK and Zhejiang.

The CEO Council was established during former UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s state visit to China in 2018. During the visit, China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) invited the UK delegation to take part in a bilateral business dialogue to enhance UK-China business collaboration and created the CEO Council.

The visit is supported by MOFCOM, the Department of International Trade (DIT), the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), the China International Contractors Association (CHINCA), and CBBC. The delegation will be led by Mr YU Yuantang, Deputy Director General of the Department of European Affairs, MOFCOM, together with senior representatives from DIT, CBI, and CHINCA, as well as senior business representatives from the CEO Council and CBBC.
