Mr Wayne Gallichan of Locate Jersey, together with representatives from Jersey Post, Basel Global Group and Indigo Lighthouse Group, will give a presentation on how Chinese businesses can harness Jersey's position in Europe and take advantage of an attractive business and investment environment.


Jersey is in the enviable position of being geographically close to the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, whilst not being part of the European Union. This geographical and political position affords Jersey a number of strategic advantages when it comes to certain business opportunities. The main sector that has grown over the last fourty years, and is now supporting the economy of the Island, is the well-regulated finance industry. There are however other business that are taking advantage of a European Directive and locating their businesses in Jersey. Businesses in Jersey have swiftly adapted to the ever-changing business environment. As a result, a “Fulfilment” industry was born, including services realted to e-commerce, logistics, fianlcial services, etc.
