LONDON, June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
On 19 June DealGlobe will host the second China Britain Investment and Partnership Forum during London Tech Week at Level 39, One Canada Square. DealGlobe is a digital platform focused on small to medium sized M&A and capital raise deals across Europe and Asia.
The all day Forum, which is focused on the development of bilateral trade and investment between the UK & China, includes speakers such as Dr Gerald Lyons (Chief Economic Advisor to the Mayor of London) and Chen Chao (China Investment Group). In addition, DealGlobe has invited 25 guests from China to attend the event and network with UK companies.
The topic for this year's Forum is Developing Cross-Border Partnerships, Mergers & Acquisitions. It is intended as a practical session on making opportunities work, overcoming challenges and guiding the development of effective business strategies for UK & Chinese businesses.
The day's events include keynote speeches and case studies and will cover the implications of Green Infrastructure investment and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) on Europe, the Shanghai Free Trade Zone and how technology companies can expand globally.
Lin Feng, founder and CEO of DealGlobe said, "DealGlobe aims to transform the way mergers and acquisitions can be conducted by creating an online platform and the Forum is a real-world demonstration of this. The UK is already the number one destination for Chinese investment in the EU (2014) - my goal for the day is to improve the UK's chances of being a recipient of this growing outbound investment.
Feng continues, "We are privileged to have high level speakers and attendees including Fosun International which has recently bought a 5% stake in Thomas Cook. Attendees will also be able to learn from China Equity, one of China's earliest venture capital and private equity investment firms and from China Investment Corporation's sovereign wealth fund."
According to DealGlobe the next phase of economic development in China will come with greater familiarity of digital platforms and increasing establishment of e-commerce. Whilst the market size and customer numbers are huge, the penetration still remains relatively low and this represents an opportunity for UK companies.
The CBIPF is supported by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), China Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA) and London & Partners.
