Many very high level Chinese business leaders will be flying in from China especially for this strategically important event. This forum, organised by the Association of Chinese Financial Professionals in the UK (ACfPU) and DealGlobe provide a great opportunity for its participants and supporters to gain direct access to this exclusive community of high profile business leaders from China and Europe.

We will also be joined by leading entrepreneurs from the UK and Europe. The timing of this strategically important forum has been carefully planned, we are now in an exciting new era of business development between China and Britain which follows on from recent visits to China by the UK’s Prime Minister, Chancellor and the Mayor of London. Our forum has been extremely well received and is seen as a tremendous opportunity to promote cross-border co-operation which would enhance business opportunities for those who wish to engage in this forum.
