The powerhouse of the BRICs continues to show strength in manufacturing but the real story right now is the growth of its internal market. Recent announcements from the government point to a lowering of expectations around economic growth and a focus on Chinese consumption, not global export. In turn this will continue to create vast opportunities for businesses to sell their products into the Chinese market.
At this breakfast, a panel of experts will share their stories of achieving success in China, including Mike Taylor, deputy chief executive of Liverpool Vision on how the city is capitalising on opportunities after World Expo 2010 in Shanghai.
It will be an opportunity to understand the current state of play for businesses operating in the country, what their future plans are and how you can develop your business into the country.
