British Business in China: Sentiment Survey

As the voice of British business in China, BritCham advocates on behalf of our members to both the British and Chinese governments for the purpose of better directing trade relations. The dialogues we foster raise the issues and concerns of our members to make their voice heard in government and the wider China business environment.

The Chamber has recently released its British Business in China: Member Sentiment Survey, the first public survey of British businesses in China. This survey assessed over 200 of our members’ reflections on their business experience in 2018 and their outlook on 2019. Topics discussed include: business environment, market access issues and the impact of global affairs on member companies’ operations.

Our survey finds that at a time of flux in international economic relations for both the UK and China, British business is expressing overall confidence in the Chinese market. However, respondents highlight that there are still key business environment and market access issues for British business in China that must be addressed. The most critical of these issues are:

  • cybersecurity requirements.
  • intellectual property protection.
  • licensing restrictions.

Nevertheless, our survey finds that businesses on the whole remain optimistic about the opportunities found in the China market and are investing in China accordingly.
