Event details

We are delighted to invite you to a business roundtable with William Beardmore-Gray, Matt Tweedie, Karen Bowes and Craig Shute on Wednesday, 13 March, 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm.

This roundtable is part of our Global Visionary series, which is designed to cultivate robust business connections, amplify access to global business insights, and facilitate meaningful interactions among our esteemed members and esteemed visiting global senior management/VIPs.

China has consistently served as one of the pivotal engines driving the global economy, owing to its expansive market and rapidly evolving business landscape that entices global enterprises to invest and collaborate. However, amidst shifting global trade dynamics, the incessant emergence of technological innovations, and geopolitical complexities, China’s business environment now confronts fresh opportunities and challenges. In this event, we cordially invite four distinguished leaders from Knight Frank, a well-known global property consultancy, to provide their invaluable international perspectives on the Chinese market. Furthermore, we extend a sincere invitation to representatives of foreign multinational corporations engaged in business operations within China to partake in this event, fostering a collective exploration of the opportunities and challenges presented by the current business climate in China.

This session is convened under strict Chatham House rules to facilitate open discussion and encourage the establishment of a supportive network of British and international companies.

This event is by invitation only.
