UK-China Business Forum 2023
China is the second largest global economy and the UK’s third largest trading partner. Many UK businesses have found huge success in the China market. But the global economic slowdown, the covid pandemic, and geo-political tensions have all had an impact on the environment for international business there.
Our line-up of senior speakers from business, academia and government will discuss the prospects for trade with China supporting post-pandemic economic growth, revitalising UK exports, and stimulating regional investment opportunities.
Indeed, China and the UK face many of the same challenges: rebuilding economic growth while making the transition to Net Zero, dealing with technological change, and addressing growing disparities in regional economic development.
Business links and trade and investment have a key role to play in tackling these challenges, though the investment, technology and expertise they mobilise: helping to accelerate the transition to a greener economy, catalyse innovation, and tackle regional inequalities.
