The growing tide of Chinese outbound investment is one of the most exciting trends in the UK-China commercial relationship. Some of the biggest names in Chinese business have been drawn to the UK’s open and welcoming environment in recent years, making Britain the number one destination in Europe for Chinese investment.
CBBC’s China Outbound programme is specifically designed to enable British and Chinese companies to identify practical opportunities and to realise investment partnerships around the world in a variety of sectors.
CBBC’s China Outbound Conference – the flagship annual event in our China Outbound programme – will be opened by CBBC’s Chairman Lord Sassoon together with senior members of the Chinese government, and attended by outstanding companies with plans to invest overseas.
The conference will explore the nature of China’s growing investment in the UK and worldwide. What has driven Chinese investment in the UK? What are the keys to success?
We will explore the prospects for Chinese investment around the world and the sectors in which this will be realised. What will be the major trends of the future, and how can the UK and China cooperate to optimum effect?
The key to profitable investment partnerships will be revealed in a conversation with prominent Chinese investors who have already made a success of their ventures in the UK. What motivated them to choose Britain? How would they advise new investors?
British companies will meet Chinese investors who are serious about achieving their global ambitions in the UK or a third country. Chinese enterprises will hear how and why to invest in the UK and find out how they can collaborate with British companies around the world.
Three breakout sessions will go into greater depth in key areas:
Consumer & Retail
