The British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong
Andrew Seaton, Executive Director of the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, recently attended the CBBC China Outbound Conference 2017 in Shenzhen with over 400 listed companies. The conference focused on the latest investment policies, new trends in key industries, and case studies of successful investments in the UK. China is becoming more experienced in overseas business and, even though the UK’s decision to leave the EU has raised some uncertainty, the UK still remains one of the top destinations for Chinese investors.
Andrew Seaton, executive director of the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, said the number of representatives from business chambers and international companies was a sign of a high level of interest in strategies set out in the 19th Party Congress. This interest also means the business sector wants to know more about the implementation of strategies as well as business opportunities awaiting Hong Kong-based business. Seaton was also impressed by the number of Greater Bay Area-related questions participants raised at the briefing.
