As China re-opens for business following the removal of its zero covid policy, don’t miss this chance to attend CBBC’s flagship UK-China Business Forum on 15 March

Our line-up of senior speakers from business, academia and government will discuss the prospects for trade with China supporting post-pandemic economic growth, revitalising UK exports, and stimulating regional investment opportunities.

Indeed, China and the UK face many of the same challenges: rebuilding economic growth while making the transition to Net Zero, dealing with technological change, and addressing growing disparities in regional economic development.

Business links and trade and investment have a key role to play in tackling these challenges through the investment, technology and expertise they mobilise, helping to accelerate the transition to a greener economy, catalyse innovation, and tackle regional inequalities.

There has never been a better time to look ahead to the outlook for UK-China business, so make sure you join us for this opportunity to explore UK-China trade relations, the policy environment in both countries, and how UK businesses can capitalise on green trade and investment opportunities.
