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 reached GBP 104.5 billion. China remains the UK’s third-largest export market after the EU and North America. The UK is the global No.1 destination for foreign direct investment in Europe and was the largest recipient of Chinese investment in Europe in 2019. We have also seen high levels of UK foreign direct investment flow into China, reaching GBP 3 billion (RMB 27.4 billion) in 2018, up 159% on 2017.

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. The biennial awards have grown to become a prestigious feature of the business calendar, and consisting of ten categories in 2020.
