Executive Committee

The Executive Committee defines the strategy of the Chamber and is the driving force behind our success. The committee consists of business leaders from a wide range of industries, all of whom are specialists in UK-China trade.

Senior representatives from our partner organisations, the China-Britain Business Council, the Department for International Trade, the Confederation of British Industry and the British Council, sit on the committee as ex-officio members.
