THE BRITISH BUSINESS AWARDS – Honouring British Success in China 英国商业大奖 – 彰显卓越成就

Britain is a byword for business excellence. Britain’s plethora of market leaders across the full spectrum of industries and the longstanding worldwide reputation for innovation have not gone unnoticed, with China recognising these strengths. 2019 saw record volumes of UK-China bilateral trade. Total bilateral trade is now worth over £80bn, an increase of 17.6% from 2018. China remains the UK’s third largest export market after the EU and USA. UK trade with China including Hong Kong (which is measured separately) reached £104.5bn in 2019, the first time it has surpassed £100bn. The UK is global NO.1 destination for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) in Europe and the NO.1 for European investment from China.

Organised by the British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, the British Business Awards recognises and promotes excellence in innovation, enterprise and endeavour in the British and Chinese business communities.
