Made in China 2025

19 September 2016

What is ‘Made in China 2025’ and what could it mean for East Midlands companies?

We will be hosting this event which will be led by the China Britain Business Council, this seminar will explore the new Chinese business policy which will radically transform the economy. ‘Made in China 2025’ is a national strategy to comprehensively upgrade the market into one that promotes high level manufacturing and fosters creative industries.
 
In order for this ambitious revolution to take place, Chinese companies will need to forge stronger partnerships and business relations with companies who are already working at this level. Considering the skills, assets and strengths of the East Midlands, this policy poses a fantastic opportunity for local companies to be part of a global transformation.
 
This informative seminar will unpick the opportunities for East Midlands businesses to make head way in China and identify trade routes for local companies seeking to access the Chinese market.
Following the recent EU referendum result, it has never been more important for companies to look globally and with China’s economy predicted to be larger than EU market by 2025, there is no better time for companies to get out and start forging stronger links with China.
