More and more British firms are seeking to break into Chinese markets. This is a challenge that needs to be addressed through in-depth knowledge focusing on how to do business there, and how to find out the knowledge and contacts required.       

In partnership with ISBE Entrepreneurial Learning, Practice and Policy and with support by the China-Britain Business Council, the forum will include two main themes - how to do business in China, and forming relationships in China. The event saw an "in conversation” format which will give those with real knowledge and experience an opportunity to share their expert advice and business tips.
