Sir Sebastian Wood HM Ambassador and Patron of the British Business Awards 2014
"This is a great time to celebrate British business in China. From architecture to healthcare to the creative industries, companies from all across the UK are contributing to China’s development and helping to improve the lives of its people. Two-way trade is at a historic high and I look forward to seeing a broad range of nominations that reflect the richness and diversity of our business relationship."
Russell Brown Chairman of the Judging Panels
“I am excited about the launch of our fifth British Business Awards in China. There are many success stories of British companies doing business in and with China, of British-educated alumni and of Chinese firms doing business in and with the UK. The BBA is a great platform to showcase these success stories and we urge people to come forward and share these, to be participants and to be involved.”
