Event description


Sheffield China Business Seminars 2017 - 2018

Seminar One

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 to take advantage of the China opportunity, we have invited a panel of speakers to give attendees an insight about the Chinese market, the latest opportunities coming out of China for businesses in Sheffield and how can various organisations support you on your journey to China.

Ben Hui, China Project Manager from 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.
