For a number of years, the Publishers Association ('PA'), The Department for International Trade ('DIT'), and the China-Britain Business Council (‘CBBC’) have worked in tandem to connect UK publishing businesses with their Chinese counterparts to undertake conversations about publishing, distribution deals and collaboration. 

In 2021, we will be launching a new series of online programmes, with the first focusing on Children's and Academic & Professional books: The event - UK-China Publishing Connect - Forging New China Partnerships - will support publishing companies from the UK and China. This programme comprises of two-day 1-2-1 matchmaking business introductions.


Target Audiences:

  • Leading Chinese publishers (IP cooperation, Finding new independent authors, etc.)
  • Investors who want to invest in British publishing.
