Are You Ready For China? Doing Business In The Year Of The Monkey
In partnership with the China-Britain Business Council.
China is a highly important export destination for British businesses; Gloucestershire companies are encouraged to join in with this fantastic celebration of traditional Chinese cuisine whilst learning about opportunities that are available to local companies in the world’s second largest economy.
