England China Business Forum, together with China West Midlands (an initiative of the Chinese Community Centre – Birmingham), invite you to a celebration of the Year of the Ox.

2020 has been a difficult year for all of us and we hope that the Year of the Ox will be better. Join us for a serious and fun celebration of the importance of the relationship between China and the UK. 

As well as the speaker panel, the event will include breakout rooms for networking and discussions, Q&A, video clips of cultural activities and a fun quiz.

To help us look ahead at how trade and investment relationships may develop with China in 2021 we have a panel of 3 speakers:
