China’s Outbound Investment: New Opportunities for the UK to Gain a Slice of China’s Growing Economic Pie

As the global economy is stumbling along in a slow recovery, it has become the order of the day all over the world to step up regional cooperation to drive economic growth. More than three years ago, in response to economic globalization, China brought forward the Belt and Road Initiative, which was aimed at boosting the common prosperity of China and countries along the Belt and Road. The Forum will begin with experts’ probe into the characteristics, patterns and trends of China’s outbound investment in light of the Belt and Road Initiative.

The UK has long been a Mecca for Chinese investors by virtue of its favorable investment climate and the complementary advantages in economy between China and the UK. In light of the Belt and Road Initiative, how will businesses in China and the UK identify new opportunities based on existing cooperation? How will they push forward Chinese companies’ investment in the UK for industrial integration and complementarity? Flush with funds, Chinese enterprises excel in manufacturing and Internet-based business, while their UK counterparts boast cutting-edge technologies and a large talent pool. How will the two sides work together to make inroads into the third-party market? How will the financial industry, an important bond connecting China and the UK, boost bilateral commercial cooperation?

The Forum will combine the discussions that center on investment with case studies at thematic sessions to provide you with not only insights into new trends and prospects for China-UK cooperation, but also opportunities for interaction with enterprises from the two sides.
