Representatives of the China-Britain Business Council are to speak at MiNetwork's Go Global COnference in Manchester in June to outline the opportunities that exist for UK companies.

Go Global takes place in Manchester on 30 June and will see a range of marketing services agencies and international support and advisory organisations gather to talk about the issues that surround international expansion and to offer advice and guidance to those agencies looking to enter overseas markets.

China is now the second largest trading power behind that of the USA with total international trade with $2.2 trillion and presents significant opportunities for UK-based service sector companies looking to expand internationally.

The China-Britain Business Council is the leading organisation helping UK companies grow and develop their business in China aims to help all UK companies of all sizes and sectors access the full potential of the fastest growing market in the world. From its nine UK offices and 11 office in China, the organisation offers advice and consultancy, market research, event management, an overseas market introduction service, trade missions and exhibitions, and setting up rep offices.

Richard Draycott, Managing Director of Minetwork, said: “As one of the BRIC countries, China has to be looked at by ambitious marketing services agencies as a marketplace worth exploring in the coming years. As the second largest economy on the planet and boasting exciting cities such as Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong then China is a very interesting country and I am delighted that the China-Britain Business Council will be attending Go Global to talk to attendees about the opportunities it could offer them in the future.”

International respected agencies Elmwood, Reading Room, Fifth Ring, Photolink and Orb International will also be speaking at Go Global and offering guidance and advice to agencies looking to enter overseas markets from the USA to the Far East.
