Executive Vice-President and Secretary-General Zhang Xiaoyu Met with Mr. Stephen Phillips, CEO of China-Britain Business Council and His Delegation

On the afternoon of January 28, 2010, Mr. Zhang Xiaoyu, Executive Vice-President and Secretary-General of our association, met with Mr. Stephen Phillips, CEO of China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) and Dr. Peter Thong, Managing Director of the British Centre in China.

CBBC is an organization which provides business consultation on China to the Department of Business Innovation and Skills of UK as well as a most important agency responsible for the promotion of trade between China and UK. Through the network of nine offices in UK and eleven offices across China, CBBC extends various services to nearly 1,000 companies such as providing consultation on investment policies in China, holding seminars, finding cooperative partners, and so on. Meanwhile, it often organizes and receives senior Chinese leaders in their business visits to UK. 

In December, 2009, CBBC reached into a strategic cooperative agreement with the British Chamber of Commerce in China. Both sides consolidated their businesses and member companies in China.

Executive Vice-President Zhang Xiaoyu introduced to the visiting guests the development history and resources of our association as well as various important events which we have organized.

Mr. Phillips introduced that CBBC has done analytical research on more than 270 second and third –level Chinese cities and has put its focus on 35 cities.  They are encouraging more British companies to make investment in these cities, for the reason that they have realized that cities at provincial and municipal levels in China have more development spaces for foreign companies with the further deepening of reform and open-up in China. Executive Vice-President Zhang Xiaoyu gave many constructive opinions on the cooperation between both parties in this area, which received appreciation and active response from Mr. Stephen Phillips and Mr. Peter Thong.

Both parties agreed to draw on each other’s comparative advantages and strengthen cooperation in various fields so as to further promote the exchange and cooperation between Chinese and British companies. In addition, both parties will sign on their strategic cooperative agreement very soon.
