ACOLINK and event partners are pleased to announce the launch of Let’s Do China 2019 campaign, and invite businesses, wanting to trade with China, to join them at the alternative workshop for trading and understanding local market opportunities from a fresh perspective. This year’s campaign is run in association with Squire Patton Boggs – a global law firm, with the support of Department for International Trade (DIT) Exporting is GREAT programme.

China is opening up wider for business, and it’s welcoming businesses to embrace the opportunities. Following on the campaign officially launched in November 2018 where “Let’s Do China” visited three cities across the Northern Powerhouse (Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester), Let’s Do China’s 2019 Roadshow will bring fresh updates on the opportunities, as well as discuss practical solutions to the challenges, in order to help businesses embrace the market potential with confidence.

This week in June, the campaign will see events taking place in Leeds and Manchester, with Newcastle, London, and Birmingham coming later this Autumn.

Anita Zhang, ACOLINK’s CEO, explained — ’the global market landscape changes rapidly. Thanks to our network and the work we do alongside our partners, including leading organisations and Chinese central government agencies, we are always up-to-date with the knowledge of what’s coming. We have the ability to directly reach the sources behind the latest developments to understand what the changes mean, and relay them to you. That’s why our material is always evolving. We have plenty of insights to share’.

’We believe that the future is global, and LetsDoChina(.)org is all about sharing and bringing together a community of like-minded organisations, businesses, as well as individuals who see beyond the zero-sum game’, she added.

As a global law firm we regularly support our clients with their expansion strategies into China’s dynamic markets. We have experts in the UK and on the ground in Shanghai and Beijing.
