The China-Britain Business Council/British Chamber, CAITEC and CHINCA are pleased to invite you to our “Belt & Road Workshop–Tendering Processes & Bankability in Regulated Countries”.
Workshop Focus – In countries with developed regulatory frameworks and financial markets, specialised knowledge and experience are necessary when putting forward compliant bids, as well as winning and raising (local) financing for public infrastructure projects.
