The agri-tech sector, which includes businesses and research institutes right across the food and non-food supply chain, is being invited to attend a one-day event giving practical guidance on business opportunities in China, to be held on Thursday 9th December at the Coventry Chamber of Commerce, .
Organizers of the event, the IATC (International Agri-Technology Centre), have asked experts to share their first-hand experience of the Chinese market. Speakers include industry specialist, Stephen Scoones, who runs his own company in China, managing projects in sustainable agriculture, aquaculture and related environmental technologies.
The day also includes an overview on Chinese business culture from Tracy Tang, Chinese Commercial Officer at UK Trade & Investment, guidance from the CBBC (China-Britain Business Council) on how to do business in China, as well as information on the services available to British companies working in China from the China Trade Liaison Office. The speakers will also be available, with other sector experts, for one-to-one sessions for company-specific advice.
Gregory Anguise of the IATC says, ‘With the Prime Minister’s recent visit to China highlighting the importance of developing trade with China, this event couldn’t have come at a better time. We have developed this seminar specifically to take some of the mystery out of working with China, and to help iron out any difficulties companies already active in China may have come across. Places are limited so I advise booking as soon as possible.’
The event is being held on Thursday 9th December 2010 at Coventry Chamber of Commerce, Oak Tree Court, Binley Business Park, Harry Weston Road, Coventry CV3 2UN.
