The British Business Awards
The British Business Awards 2016 serve to recognise and distinguish those companies who have greatly contributed to cultural and business-related exchanges between China and the UK. Furthermore, the Awards are a celebration of the numerous milestones that Sino-British relations have achieved in recent years, and are an excellent way to mark the beginning of a golden era between China and the UK.
Are YOU the Best of British?
