The Chinese economy has grown at just under 10 per cent a year for 32 years, overtaking Japan in 2010 to become the world’s 2nd largest economy.
Well known for its manufacturing capability, China is the largest global producer of toys, textiles, washing machines, cameras and computers (among hundreds of other products). It is also the world’s largest consumer of iron, steel, coal and cement, and China’s hunger for raw materials continues.

Whether selling, trading, investing or franchising, China offers opportunities in abundance to UK companies, large or small. Exporters new to China or businesses looking to increase market share, or enter new countries, will benefit from the latest advice and guidance.

Learn more about your company’s potential from the country experts speaking at our joint UK Trade & Investment/West Midlands Chambers of Commerce Prospects event.
