Businesses can improve links with ChinaBy Becky Barnes

Businesses looking to form relationships with Chinese firms are being offered the chance to meet more than 100 delegates at a UK-China matchmaking event.
Bracknell Forest Council is working with LinkToChina to offer firms the opportunity to meet on Monday, September 17 and Tuesday, September 18.
Councillor Marc Brunel-Walker, executive member for economic development and regeneration, said: “For companies looking to form relationships with Chinese businesses, this is an event not to be missed.
“The line-up of delegates so far is very impressive, and only 25 per cent of the party has been to the UK before, so this really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for businesses to get involved, make a good impression and form long-term relationships.”
Sixty businesses from around the Thames Valley have already signed up to meet more than 100 delegates from the Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Hunan, Shaanxi, Jilin and Qingdao provinces.
The first day will feature a conference at the Copthorne Hotel in Slough, and will include presentations from key note speakers including Minister Counsellor Zhou Xiaoming of the Chinese Embassy followed by an awards reception and dinner.
On day two, businesses are invited to meet the Chinese delegation at a Bracknell Forest Council hosted event at Ascot Racecourse.
This will provide the chance to talk face-to-face with Chinese entrepreneurs.
