Description

Sheffield China Business Seminars 2017 - 2018

Seminar Five


Getting paid from China: Advice on Finance and Money Repatriation


Trading internationally undoubtedly requires sending and receiving money from abroad as well as filling in export documentation. Not having the necessary finance in place for your export strategy or a lack of international experience to negotiate favourable terms can often be detrimental. In this seminar, we have invited Jon Gillgrass, International Director of Santander UK to talk about sending money to and from China, Nick Patrick, Head of South Yorkshire International Trade Centre to talk about the importance of export documentation and seasoned exporters William Beckett, Chairman of The International Trade Forum to give our audience some pointers on negotiating payment terms with China.

Whether you are already trading with China or planning to do so in the near future, this seminar is not to be missed.
