Global Partnership Opportunities for UK and Chinese Businesses
China’s outbound foreign direct investment reached $116 billion in 2014 - an increase of 15.5 per cent over the previous year. For the first time ever, China has become a net capital exporter, while the global ambition of Chinese companies has been further encouraged by the government’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ strategy.
The UK continues to be Europe’s most attractive destination for Chinese investment. In 2014, the UK benefited from $5.1 billion of Chinese investment, nearly 30 per cent of Europe’s total. The UK's advantages include a strong and vibrant economy, world class research and innovation capabilities, along with sector strengths that match China’s needs. UK and Chinese businesses can also work together and become ideal partners for developing markets across the world.
CBBC’s annual China Outbound Conference is now one of the UK's flagship events in China. CBBC’s 3rd China Outbound Conference will take place in Beijing on 3 November 2015. Delegates at this year’s conference will be able to learn about investment policies from senior members of the Chinese and UK governments, find out about new trends and opportunities in key sectors and listen to case studies from Chinese businesses already investing in the UK and globally. There will also be ample opportunity for networking and discussing real investment projects identified prior to the conference and featured in CBBC’s China Outbound Investment Project Catalogue.
