While global economies have been battered by rolling lockdowns throughout the pandemic, the Chinese economy has proved remarkably resilient: expanding by 12.5% in the first half of 2021.
As the UK’s 3rd largest goods trading partner and 6th largest buyer of British goods exports in 2020 – the Chinese market presents an enormous opportunity for UK companies looking to diversify their international business activities, whether this be via cross border E-commerce, establishing operations in-market, sourcing goods from China, or working with Chinese export and import agents.
However, with travel restrictions still in-place it can be unclear to British businesses and first-time entrants what steps they can take in the UK to set up in China. So let CBBC guide you with our latest webinar series.
Our 7-part series will provide practical advice on:
1. How to set up, run and exit a successful business in China from Europe;
5. How to use E-commerce as a first step into China;
6. Creating legally enforceable agreements;
7. Sourcing products and managing quality control remotely.
