International specialist business consultancy, ConnectChina, recently hosted Lightsong Media Group and Scala Group during a visit to South West China as part of its recent contract win with the Yunnan Investment Bureau as it looks to attract new companies and promote the trade and investment opportunities in the Yunnan Province.
From micro companies to multinationals, ConnectChina will bring together representatives of UK and Irish businesses, who either currently trade in China or trade abroad. The initiative is part of a broad strategy by the Yunnan Investment Bureau seeking to build stronger international business connections and create opportunities for investment in the Yunnan Province.
With countless companies of all sizes from the UK currently thriving in China, Managing Director of ConnectChina, Joanna Lavan, is inviting UK and Irish businesses who are interested in the growth opportunities in China to contact ConnectChina to explore the Yunnan Province, either as an initial discussion or as part of a planned trip meeting potential partners and government officials.
The visits will showcase the strength of the Yunnan Province as a leading investment and business destination and give a unique vantage point for potential investors to explore. A series of events to raise awareness of investing in Yunnan will also be hosted by ConnectChina across the UK and Ireland, supported by Cathay Pacific, Appt and Traveleads.
With UK exports to China seeing a 60% growth since 2010, according to the Home Office, trade between the UK is already at record levels. Developing from a remote region into a powerhouse of China, the Yunnan Province is the third-fastest growing in China with a population of 47 million and boasts 132 industrial parks, covering key sectors that include Biological medicine, Information/E-commerce, Modern Logistics, Consumer & Food Manufacturing, Agriculture, Tourism & Culture and New Materials.
Commenting on the contract, Joanna Lavan, Managing Director of ConnectChina, said:
“ConnectChina is proud to collaborate with the Yunnan Investment Bureau to share our knowledge and help the Yunnan Province continue to develop. We’re excited that we have the opportunity to support many more companies into China and strengthen business links.”
“Yunnan presents a wealth of opportunities for trade and investment, and the visits we are hosting are important in showcasing the very best of what the Province has to offer while providing practical advice to businesses ready to take the next step into new markets in China.”
ConnectChina was established in 2004 and has offices in Huddersfield and Shanghai. It specialises in providing business support services to help both public and private sectors in the UK and overseas develop trade and investment opportunities with China. Earlier this year, Joanna joined the PM, Theresa May, and a multi-sector trade delegation of more than 40 businesses from across the UK on a visit to China.
