On Monday 20th of November, the British Chamber Southwest China hosted the first British Business Assembly in Chongqing at the Intercontinental Hotel , Chongqing. The event sought to bring together the business community in Southwest China, particularly in Chongqing to give an introduction and overview of the various UK organisations and departments currently based in Southwest China.
This is the first British Business Assembly hosted in Chongqing in such a scale. The event was attended by over 120 members of the business community in Chongqing as well as numerous government officials. Lots of positive feedback and useful connections were generated throughout the meeting.
The idea was to differentiate and learn about the support and services that each organisation offers, how to engage with each of them and to be informed of new information regarding any upcoming opportunities and activities over the next year.
It was with great pleasure that we were able to welcome speakers from the British Consulate General in Chongqing, the Department of International Trade, the British Council, the China Britain Business Council, the Wales Government Office and also from the organisers; the British Chamber of Commerce Southwest China.
Last but not the least, a big thank-you to our venue partner InterContinental CQ.
Please stay tuned for more to come.
