Crowe Clark Whitehill to host seminar on doing business in China's booming second cities
16 January 2012 09:38
Crowe Clark Whitehill in Cheltenham, in conjunction with HSBC and the China-Britain Business Council, are hosting a special seminar this month aimed at helping Gloucestershire companies capitalise on opportunities in China's so-called 'second cities'.
Companies have historically focused their attention on the larger cities of Beijing and Shanghai. However, as these markets mature and competition intensifies, UK businesses are increasingly targeting the less familiar second-tier Chinese cities, which are currently growing at a faster rate than China's more traditional business centres.
To support them, Crowe Clark Whitehill and HSBC are inviting local businesses, who are considering doing business in China or have already taken their first tentative steps into the country, to an informative business seminar on January 24 at the Mayflower restaurant in Cheltenham. This will be followed by a Chinese New Year celebration banquet.
The seminar will be hosted by a team of seasoned China experts from the China-Britain Business Council, Crowe Clark Whitehill and HSBC. Together they aim to address the key challenges for UK businesses in this particular part of the world.
David Anderson, Partner at Crowe Clark Whitehill LLP, will be chairing the panel discussion.
Our panel of experts will give practical advice on how best to overcome the challenges and, equally importantly, have met like-minded businesses with whom you may be able to form mutually beneficial relationships. Attendees will certainly leave the seminar with more knowledge about the opportunities out there.
With UK GDP forecast to remain flat for 2012, there can be no better time to explore the significant opportunities that are available in China.
