China: A land of opportunities
Sarah Canning, IoD Northamptonshire Chair
Recent months have seen the IoD working with the Department of International Trade to provide members with information about opportunities in China. As China continues to promote Free Trade Zone areas, the IoD was able to gain further insight into the Dalian Area of China (Liaoning) Pilot Free Trade Zone when Sarah Canning, Chair of IoD Northamptonshire and a partner Franklins Solicitors, joined a delegation exploring business opportunities there and promoting the work of the IoD. The area’s key industries are advanced equipment manufacturing, high-tech, finance and commerce and logistics. The delegation was welcomed by local government officials and visited the VW factory in Dalian as well as prospective sites for future development. There are exciting plans to incorporate a British village area in Dalian offering future opportunities for a variety of sectors including food and drink, shoes and luxury British brands. If you are interested in exploring any of these opportunities, please contact the Regional Office for further information.
