CBBC Meets MofCom Minister Wang Wentao
CBBC’s Chair Autumn Visit kicked off this morning, with Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles leading a meeting between CBBC Members and Minister WANG Wentao of the Ministry of Commerce (MofCom).
A group of fifteen British business leaders from across a range of sectors attended the meeting with China’s ministry responsible for trade and investment. Attendees had the opportunity to raise questions and asks directly with the Minister relating to policy and regulation concerning British business in China. Issues raised during the meeting covered a wide range of key topics including lifting the suspension on direct flights between the UK and China, individual income tax reform, and access to licenses.
The meeting with MofCom is the start of a programme of engagements CBBC has planned with key Chinese government ministries and regulatory bodies, over the coming months. We encourage CBBC Members who wish to get involved to get in touch.
