Today we’re in Beijing for the first day of APSCo’s long awaited trade delegation to China.
The recruitment market in China is set for strong growth, and the opportunity for high quality British companies is vast. Today we have been receiving an education on the Chinese market and the exciting possibilities for British recruitment consultancies wishing to expand into the area.
This morning Henry Bell of the British Embassy gave a truly insightful overview of the economic and political situation in the region. Susie Bates, chair of the EU Chamber of Commerce HR Forum, presented the main HR issues in corporate China, focusing on the opportunities for recruitment companies and Anne Zheng of the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) spoke on the environment for new British businesses in China.
After a quick lunch, some of the group hit Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. We’re all looking forward to day two.
