Hong Kong Your Gateway to China - Seminar Luncheon 17th June 2013

15 April 2013

Invest Hong Kong and the China-Britain Business Council, in partnership with Locate Jersey, are coming to Jersey in June to highlight the opportunities for Jersey businesses to use Hong Kong as a base for growing their business in China and the wider Asia market. 
Hong Kong’s appeal is threefold: it is a dynamic city with strong growth prospects; it is a gateway to opportunities in mainland China and it’s a regional base for expansion across Asia. In addition, Hong Kong is increasingly the first stepping stone for mainland Chinese companies themselves when going global. 
This unique event will bring together all of the key players. Connect with Hong Kong and China experts, Locate Jersey, the States of Jersey Government and private sector professionals with experience of the Hong Kong and China market. 
Hear from InvestHK’s Director-General Simon Galpin, enjoy a special panel session, network over lunch and take the first small steps towards growing your operations in the exciting Asia market. All at the wonderful La Mare Wine Estate.
