On 4th October in Nottingham EMITA hosted an information packed, one-day, workshop which focussed on developing international trade in China. The workshop was run by Joanna Lavan of ConnectChina. Joanna has been helping companies develop business and trade in China for more than 13 years.
Throughout the day Joanna presented practical information and advice on all aspects of trading with China. She drew on her extensive experience and case study material to illustrate her points.
The workshop covered many topics including identifying clients and partners, market entry options, IPR, contracts, challenges and working out the financials. The session on Chinese Business Culture brought some light hearted moments such as our delegates learning to present their business cards correctly.
Over lunch delegates took the opportunity to discuss their specific objectives with Joanna.
EMITA plan to host similar workshops during 2018 so do keep an eye on the events calendar; https://emita.org.uk/emita-events/event-calendar/
