    The 6th SME China Forum – The leading national event supporting UK SMEs to trade with China is coming to West London in just a few weeks and there is a discount code for WLB members.

    Now in its 6th year, The SME China Forum, ran by the China-British Business Council (CBBC) is the leading business event supporting UK small and medium sized enterprises to trade with China. With the right advice and support, more and more UK companies are finding the Chinese market a realistic and accessible market for their goods and services.
    Why attend:

    Exports to China reached more than £16.5 billion in 2017, an increase of 19.4% from 2016. China is now the 6th largest market for UK goods and 17th for services. Building on this growth, it is encouraging that President Xi recently reiterated his commitment to open up the Chinese market to foreign imports. This event offers a broad range of practical support for any UK company new to China or expanding in the market.

    Topics will include:
    • Runway to China – strategies and tactics for a soft landing in China
    • The Chinese Consumer – a new wave of consumers for UK products
    • Innovation and Tech Partnerships – China moving up the value chain
    • Digital China – the e-commerce powerhouse.
    This is the perfect opportunity to gain a wealth of information that will take you to the next level. If you work in an SME and want to spend one day equipping yourself with the best tools to do business with China, make sure you attend the SME China Forum.
