Description

Join us for this evening event in the beautiful surroundings of 19 Brook Mews, Mayfair, London and learn how to take your products or services to China. We'll be joined by experts and entrepreneurs who will share their top tips, advice and opportunities for the region.


Why China?

China is the great economic success story of the past 30 years. It’s now the world’s largest economy and a huge and expanding market for UK businesses.

There are a number of reasons to choose China as an export destination:

  • largest country in the world by population with over 160 cities of more than a million inhabitants
  • fast-growing consumer market resulting from increasing number of middle-income consumers
  • growth ensured by Chinese monetary policy
  • forecast to become the world’s largest luxury goods market by 2020
