BritCham and CBBC have organised a business delegation to Qingdao, Shandong province, which will be led by our outgoing Chairman, Sir David Brewer. The highlight of the programme will be a China Outbound seminar in Qingdao, targeting Shandong companies going global.

Why Participate?

  • Meet potential clients and business partners
    The programme will include a number of company visits, and the seminar, in particular, will be an opportunity to meet a wide range of local Chinese businesses.
  • Build relationships
    In addition to the seminar, the programme will include meetings with government officials, industry associations and other local stakeholders.
  • Raise your profile
    We are offering a number of speaking and other sponsorship opportunities at the China Outbound seminar in Qingdao. This is an ideal platform for UK businesses who wish to illustrate how their expertise can assist Chinese companies looking to expand overseas.

Target Audience:​
Attendees of the event will include decision-makers in advanced engineering firms, and local intermediaries whose clients have outbound interests (local law firms, wealth management companies etc.).

Why Qingdao?
Qingdao is the economic centre of Shandong province located on China’s east coast. It has a population of 8 million and had GDP growth of 10.6% in 2012. It is one of China’s most important ports and international trade hubs with a total import & export value of USD73.2bn in 2012. The region offers great opportunities for UK companies in a variety of sectors, which include: financial services, advanced engineering, ICT, marine, food & drink, and chemicals. 

The city is strong at advanced engineering projects that include both SOEs and private companies. Major interest in the sector is to acquire international technology, market networks & engineering capability based on fixed assets of manufacturing companies to help upgrade its technology and position in the supply chain of international markets.

The outbound investment of the city traditionally goes to Africa/USA/Australia for natural resources & infrastructure, where key players are SOEs. As for M&A in the advanced engineering sector, it is in a nascent stage while focusing on the EU and North America, where key players are both SOEs and private companies.

Cost and Registration:
The programme is open to all corporate members of CBBC and the British Chamber of Commerce in China. Participation is free of charge. All attendees are expected to cover their own expenses including travel and accommodation costs. Sponsorship opportunities are available for UK companies at the seminar.
