Chinese FlagChina remains one of the world’s most promising markets. Discover how you can take advantage of China’s opportunities in a special half-day seminar led by Hong Kong and China market experts.

Recent Chinese government measures to encourage domestic consumption, enhance infrastructure development and improve environmental standards bring with them opportunities for UK companies. The Pearl River Delta city of Jiangmen, with its cost-competitive manufacturing and sourcing, its port and historic waterfront district, is a particularly promising market. Jiangmen is best targeted via Hong Kong, which offers world-class infrastructure and professional services, the rule of law, intellectual property rights and unrivalled business experience in the Chinese mainland. In short, Jiangmen and Hong Kong are your perfect partners for success in China.

Find out how Hong Kong and Jiangmen can help British companies tap into China’s fast-growing domestic market. Sign up now for the FREE business seminar, in London or Liverpool.

chinese_premier_09Chinese delegates visited Liverpool last week ahead of Liverpool’s exhibition in the Urban Best Practice Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010.

The chief planner of the World Expo site was amongst the delegates, along with the chief planner of the Urban Best Practice Pavilion. The delegation was met by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr. Steve Rotherham, Liverpool City Council leaders Warren Bradley and Mike Storey, and a number of other high level members of Liverpool’s civic and business communities.

The delegates were given a tour of the city, which included the Albert Dock and Liverpool One, before being taken to the university to view a student exhibition showcasing potential designs for Liverpool’s place at the World Expo. The party then moved on to the town hall for a drinks reception.

The purpose of the visit was to reinforce Liverpool’s commitment to strong relations between China and the UK – a message which was reinforced in London by the visit of Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao to hold talks with Gordon Brown about increasing trade between the UK and China (pictured above).

Harbour City, 27-35 Berry Street, Chinatown, Liverpool L1 9DF

You Don’t have to be in Beijing to watch the Olympic Opening live!

“At lunchtime on Friday 8 August, the world will turn its eyes to the Olympic Stadium in Beijing for the spectacle and splendour of the Opening Ceremony. Millions of people worldwide will view this historic event, which marks the beginning of 16 days of world-class competition.” (BBC Sport).

This luncheon event is organised by ChinaLink for hundreds to share in this special celebration. Dr. Kegang Wu, Chief China Adviser for British Chambers of Commerce and Director of ChinaLink, said “This Olympics is of extra significance for those of us who are connected both with China and the UK because London will take over the Olympic torch from Beijing at the end.”

If you are disappointed about not being able to be in Beijing, why don’t you join us at this specially organised luncheon to celebrate?

If you have been looking for a unique event to entertain your clients or staff, what can be more special than to invite your guests on such a memorable occasion?

If you like Chinese culture or share an interest in the local Chinese community, this is the opportunity to rub shoulders with the locals at the heart of Liverpool Chinatown.

If you are ChinaLink clients who have been doing business with China, what better to do than coming to toast ‘Gan Bei’ for your business success?

If you are just starting to put China on your business agenda, you won’t find a better crowd to network with at the lunch.

If you are Chinese businessmen, officers, and students visiting the UK or British Chinese, you will be proud to share the moment simultaneously with the 1.3 billion Chinese in China who will be also watching live on TV.

The cost of the event, including drink at arrival and a three course Chinese lunch is £35.25 per head (or £30 concession) inclusive of VAT. (Cheque to be made payable to Liverpool Chamber of Commerce), or a table of 10 at £300 plus VAT.  We anticipate this to be a popular event.

Can You Help Our China Earthquake Appeal? May 21, 2008

Over a week after the devastating earthquake measuring a massive 7.9 on the Richter scale in Sichuan province, China and the rest of the world, are still coming to terms with the magnitude of this tragedy.

  • An estimated 71,000 thousand have been killed, buried or remain unaccounted for.
  • 5,000,000 are now homeless and in need of support.
  • 220,000 have been injured, many of them children.
  • The devastation zone measures an area of approximately 100,000 square kilometres (40,000 square miles) — an area roughly three quarters the size of England. Entire towns in mountainous Sichuan province were flattened in Monday’s quake, and have subsequently been hit by further aftershocks and landslides, making the ongoing search for any remaining survivors impossible.

With rescue operations across Sichuan continuing, providing accommodation and medicine to those lucky to survive is now critical.

Tents, medicines & equipment are in short supply and are urgently needed. We appeal to the business community in the UK to help in supporting the effort to collect donated and purchased tents and medicines for China’s earthquake zones. The Chinese Embassy and Consulate General will help in making arrangements at the China end to ensure a speedy delivery to the Earthquake area.

Please contact ChinaLink (0151 227 1233 email: chinalink@liverpoolchamber.org.uk if you are able to help in one or more of the following areas:

1. Donation of tents (family size / unused in original package)
2. Donation of medicines & other equipment (see the list below)
3. Offer of discounted supply of tents and medicines
4. Donation of cash (we will use these to purchase discounted supply of tents and medicine)
5. Offer of airfreight the tents and medicines to China

Any enquiry should be directed to Dr. Kegang Wu, Director of ChinaLink / Chief China Adviser, British Chambers of Commerce on kegang.wu@britishchambers.org.uk / 07974753528

This document and the list of medicines and equipment is also available at www.chinalink.org.uk

This appeal is supported by:

  • The Consulate General, The Peoples’ Republic of China in Manchester
  • The British Chambers of Commerce
  • ChinaLink
  • Liverpool Chamber of Commerce & Industry
  • Susino (UK) Ltd.
