Taming the Dragon: An Overview of the Chinese Market

China is the world’s second largest economy and during the 2015 State Visit, President Xi Jinping spoke about the ‘Golden Era’ between UK-China relations.  Trade and investment between the two countries has increased significantly since then.  To help Sheffield businesses take advantage of the China opportunity, we have invited a panel of speakers to give you a detailed overview of the market; the latest insights, opportunities and support available to you.  

Ben Hui, China Project Manager, Invest Sheffield will give an overview of China’s market. Hailing Yu, China Business Advisor from China Britain Business Council (CBBC) will give an update on the latest sector specific opportunities for Sheffield companies. Jerry Cheung, Managing Director of New Era Development, will discuss why China is a great destination for inward investment and share his secrets on how to successfully attract investors on board. Duncan Hoyland, Export Co-ordinator (SCR) of The Department of International Trade will also tell us how the government can support your businesses to successful export to China.
