New report on opportunities in China's Regional Cities

The latest research report on 'Opportunities for UK Businesses in China's regional cities' shows that there is a wealth of opportunities across a broad number of sectors - and UK companies need to look beyond the traditional business centres in China.

 

The original report, published in September 2008, received positive feedback from both British and Chinese businesses and was also  welcomed by the Chinese Government. The report focused attention on the market expansion and development of China’s Regional Cities and the relevance of this to British businesses.

 

However, in the last three years there have been several major economic and political developments which have impacted British business and their internationalisation prospects. The global financial crisis and UK recession which began in 2008 have changed the international economic landscape. China was not immune to this and the country launched its own financial stimulus package of US$400bn in late 2008. As a consequence of the global economic challenges, annual inward foreign direct investment shrunk by a third in 2008, but has recovered since. The positive development is reflected by the Chinese economy being valued at US$5.8 trillion in 2010, overtaking Japan to become the second-largest economy behind the USA.

 

The new report presents the findings of research conducted in 2011 by the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) and the Centre for International Business at the University of Leeds (CIBUL) for and on behalf of UKTI. The report takes into account the major economic and political developments that have taken place over the past three years and impacted British businesses and their internationalisation prospects.

For those doing business with China - China Britain Business Council

By: Peter Dirken June 30, 2010 12:00 AM

 

The China-Britain Business Council (CBBC – www.cbbc.org) is the leading organisation helping UK companies grow and develop their business in China. It supports British companies of all sizes - new entrants and established operations - through providing business services, practical in-market assistance and industry initiatives.

 

CBBC’s services provide companies with the support to access the potential of the China market and to develop a sound business strategy. Its practical in-market assistance includes market research, “Representative Office”, “Launchpad” and “Hot Desk” facilities, trade missions and exhibitions, event management and translation services.

 

CBBC has a strong business network and long heritage with more than 50 years of trusted links with China. Working closely with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), CBBC’s services are delivered through a network of nine offices in the UK and presence in 11 Chinese cities.

CBBC has also set up a number of key industry initiatives focusing on key sectors in the UK and China markets as well as on vital subjects relating to business practice in China that are common to all industries. These currently include innovation & technology (of which the China Tomorrow – www.chinatomorrow.co.uk - programme is a part); financial services; education & training; agribusiness; and energy & environment sector initiatives.

 

CBBC also provides up to date information & advice; regular news and updates on China business issues; access to visiting delegations and outward missions; and an extensive programme of workshops and seminars in both the UK & China.
