Can UK corporates ensure that their experience and expertise is incorporated into the value chain of major Chinese projects in Latin America?

This is a joint event by Canning House and the China-Britain Business Council. This seminar will examine the drivers for China’s outbound investment, evaluate the rise of Chinese investment in Latin America and discuss broader opportunities for British companies with a panel of UK service providers that have a foot print in both China and Latin America.
