CBBC invites members for a group visit to Ningbo and Zhoushan, Zhejiang province, exploring business opportunities in a range of sectors relating to China’s marine economy.

Participating members will meet government leaders in Ningbo and Zhoushan, participate in the Marine Economy Development Forum, organised in partnership with Nottingham Ningbo University China. Members will also meet with a range of regional stakeholders and potential Chinese partners to learn about opportunities in this fast growing region.

There are significant opportunities in the region for UK companies active in the following sectors:

  • Ship-building & marine engineering
  • Marine finance & professional services
  • Water & environment
  • Energy & renewable (offshore wind, oil, gas & LNG)
  • Infrastructure (urban, industrial & recreational site planning, engineering & construction services)
  • Port development & operation
  • Fishing, food processing & logistic services
Why Ningbo and Zhoushan?
Ningbo is the world’s 2nd largest deep-sea container port by volume after Shanghai. Home to over 7 million people, Ningbo is one of the fastest growing commercial and industrial regional cities in China. Ningbo’s main industries are closely related to the function of the port; logistics, ship-building, oil & petrochemicals, as well as newly promoted industries such as offshore wind and tidal power. Ningbo is already home to a number of UK enterprises, such as Nottingham University and Sondrel.
Zhoushan is located to the east of Hangzhou Bay, and acts as one of the major maritime corridors in China. The archipelago has a population of 1 million, and in 2011 Zhoushan won approval to establish the Zhoushan Islands New Area, piloting development of its marine economy. 
The programme is open to all CBBC member companies. Participation is free of charge for Corporate Members of CBBC and BCCC. Individual Members & Non-Members will be charged a fee at £816 plus VAT. All attendees are expected to cover their own expenses including travel and accommodation costs.
