CHINA: *ONE-TO-ONE BUSINESS CLINICS


With a population of 1.3 billion, China is the world's second largest economy. It is increasingly playing an important and influential role in global economics, with the country being the largest contributor to world growth since the global financial crisis of 2008. This is further driven by the very rapid growth of the Chinese middle class, representing just 4% of the population in 2000 and on track to reach 70% by 2020. China presents many opportunities for UK businesses, including, but not limited to, those operating in technology, agriculture and medicine, alongside consumer brands. All these industry sectors have seized the opportunity and are making a success of China.

Andy Clayton, CEO, LNP China, and Alex Phillips, Sales and Marketing Director, LNP China, are spending a full day at LCCI to advise UK SMEs seeking to enter the Chinese market. Their advice will be specific to your business needs and will assess your readiness to export to this exciting and growing market.

COMPANY MISSION TO VIETNAM: HO CHI MINH CITY AND HANOI


Vietnam is one of the most vibrant economies in Asia, with a large market for capital goods and a growing domestic market for consumer goods. It has an ambitious programme of major infrastructure developments including new urban railway networks, a new international hub airport and expansion of regional airports.

The food and beverage sector is considered among the rising sectors in Vietnam, thanks to its 95 million emerging market population and its fast GDP growth over several years (6.21% in 2015, 6.68% in 2014). Vietnamese consumers are shifting towards consumption of beverages with higher value, creating gaps for penetration to high-end beverage segments. Though both local and foreign players have attempted to respond to this shift, overseas companies currently enjoy the edge because Vietnamese consumers favour international brands.

The company mission will include B2B tailored agenda with interested contacts and prospects in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. As well as meetings with distributors, buyers and partners in Vietnam.

Sectors: Food and Drink
On: 
Monday 29 January - Saturday 3 February 2018
Closing date: Friday 10 November 2017

For more information contact Vanessa Vlotides, Head of International Business Team, E: vvlotides@londonchamber.co.uk or T: +44 (0)20 7203 1838
