Horasis China Meeting 2017

Published 28th September 2017 at 8:05am

Horasis will convene the 2017 Horasis China Meeting on 5-6 November in Sheffield, United Kingdom, co-hosted by the Sheffield City Region and the China Federation of Industrial Economics. More than 300 participants from business and government will join an intense two-day programme designed for senior decision makers from China and the world to identify business opportunities and innovative approaches to economic development.

Participants will discuss a wide range of issues related to China and its new economic leadership role. With the UK’s historic decision to leave the European Union, the summit will reflect on the implications for Chinese firms.

The UK wants to build on its relationship with China, which has strengthened significantly in recent years, and establish a sound post-Brexit dialogue. The UK could be central to China’s ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative, with the UK developing into a hub for construction and design competencies as well as other professional services linked to China’s outbound plan. Chinese partners are a major and growing part of Sheffield City Region’s unfolding success story, with the biggest Chinese investment outside London coming to the city centre earlier this year.

From 5-6 November this year, our international visitors will get to experience the very best of what the Sheffield City Region has to offer.
