The tenth Economic and Financial Dialogue (EFD) between the UK and China recently took place in London, with the Chancellor hosting Vice Premier Hu Chunhua and a Chinese delegation for a series of events to discuss economic issues, financial services cooperation, and trade and investment.


Major milestones that have emerged from the dialogue include UK-listed companies being the first foreign companies in the world to be able to sell shares in mainland China; widening market access for British beef and pork; and a new private sector fund, worth up to £1 billion, to help UK firms expand into Chinese markets.


The British Chamber of Commerce in China is delighted to welcome 2 speakers from the British Embassy; Ben Greenwood (First Secretary for Trade Policy for Market Access and Business Environment - DIT) and John Crichton (First Secretary and Deputy Director of Financial& Professional Services - DIT) to disseminate the outcomes, as well as providing a flavour of the political context and negotiations around the Dialogue.


This briefing is a BritCham member exclusive event.
