The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) are working hard to promote UK exports and attract inward investment. There has been a significant increase in the resource allocated to China, expanding our ability to promote UK prosperity through an increase of 63 staff and more project funding.
UKTI works closely with its partner the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) to support companies looking to export to China. This includes organising trade fairs and missions, and by sharing market insights. UKTI also identify lucrative projects for UK business via the High Value Opportunities (HVO) Programme and promote the UK via the GREAT campaign, showcasing what the UK has to offer China.
UKTI also works hard to promote the UK as a location for inward investment, including through a dedicated team in China. UKTI provide market information, location guidance and practical help to Chinese companies wanting to invest in the UK.
