Beyond Shanghai - Opportunities and Challenges
Conference on 30 March, 10am-4pm at Hilton Hotel, Liverpool
A day conference hosted by Liverpool Confucius Institute (LCI) in which major players in the city and region will reflect on their experience of the Shanghai World Expo, consider how this has affected their thinking and present their plans for the future.
Liverpool’s involvement in the World Expo 2010 provided a platform to help local business to improve international relationships. The University of Liverpool (UOL) hosted a series of events for knowledge exchange with businesses in the UK and China in the event. The university is always willing to help the local community in development of relationship with China and other international markets with its extensive expertise in business, government, law, cultures and language.
Through this conference, Liverpool Confucius Institute aims to initiate the development of a forum that will provide network support, knowledge transfer and development assistance to businesses looking/already working with China. All speakers will focus upon how they can assist in the development of a network to support these businesses and organisations.
Confirmed speakers so far include, Councillor Nick Small, University of Liverpool Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Internationalisation Professor Michael Hoey, the Chinese Consul General, Paul Wainwright from Mitchell Charlseworth Accountants and Jack Stopforth CEO of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce.
This event has been organised in association with the Liverpool Chinese Business Association, Liverpool Vision and Liverpool City Council.
Fee: £50 per head (lunch and refreshments included)
