As in the past, CBBC welcomes British companies to join the business delegation attending the China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT) 2017 in Xiamen, China’s top investment promotion event, to meet government officials and join seminars to connect to Chinese companies from all over China.
China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) strategy continues to be a hot topic this year and CBBC continues to work hard on identification of business opportunities arising out of it. This year, CBBC released its third edition of the Belt and Road report titled Belt and Road Initiative Southern Routes: UK-China Cooperation and Opportunities jointly published with the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, MOFCOM. The report highlights the role of southern provinces such as Fujian, Guangxi, Yunnan etc., as BRI connectors and in addition to focusing on the role of key ports outside China along the maritime route.
So, in CIFIT this year, we are continuing to meet representatives from Southern provinces an hold another Belt and Road serial event in Xiamen, co-organised with the World Trade Centers Association and CCPIT Xiamen. Delegates to join the visit will be able to
– Expand their brand across this important region in South-East China;
– Build relationships at the top of government;
– Meet Chinese companies from sectors related to the Belt and Road initiative.
