Event description

Description

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce takes great pleasure in announcing the ‘Doing Business in Asia Pacific’ trade talk, which will take place in Manchester on the 12th of January 2018. The event will focus on the bilateral business relations between the UK in the Indo-Pacific/Asia Pacific context. Specifically, the talk will focus on South East Asia as well as India and China.

Driven by China and India, Asia’s developing economies saw healthy rates of growth at 6.4% in 2017. Asia-Pacific has become a driver of economic growth, and the hub of investment, science and technology, contributing to nearly 50% of the global investment, trade and almost 60% of global GDP. With a rising middle class and access to a population of 4.5billion, the Asian economies present opportunities for UK based business, especially SMEs to branch into non-EU markets, particularly in light of Brexit.

This event will provide a platform for UK (specifically Manchester based) companies to understand how they can benefit from the bilateral relationship through tangible business opportunities. It will also focus on the strengths of each region in selected industries including technology, education, the retail sector and textiles and of how these can be utilised to expand into Indo-Pacific/Asia Pacific.

Investing or starting a business in a new region can be daunting and through the ‘Doing Business in Asia Pacific’ trade talk we hope to bridge the information gap. GMCC Asia Pacific has well established connections in the region and will be able to provide support for any UK based company that wishes to do business in the Asia Pacific Region.

Who should attend this event?
