Regional Investmentment & Export Prospects: Chongqing & South West China

22 May 2014 - West Bromwich - Stoke on Trent - Coventry

West Midlands exports to the markets of China have grown by 220% over the past two years, with little sign that this demand, for the high-quality high-precision highly reliable products the West Midlands produces, will slacken. Indeed as the Chinese economy shifts to a more consumer orientated, higher wage structure this demand is expected to intensify. To find out how you can take advantage of these opportunities, it is recommended that you attend one of our regional China Briefings.

Tina Redshaw, UKTI advisor based in Chongqing, will also be available for 1-2-1 Export Clinics meetings to discuss your companies potential in this market (to book a meeting call 07703 735 408)
