Successful forum held in the House of Commons

Chinese Welfare Trust’s sell-out forum, kindly hosted by The Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, on “China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI): Opportunities for UK” was held in the House of Commons on 19 October.  The forum was timely, as pointed out by Co-Chair Mei Sim Lai in her welcome address, as it coincided with the 19th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party.

Furthermore, as China deepens its resolve to implement the Belt and Road Initiative, there is increasing recognition among UK businesses and investors that they need to prepare to take full advantage of the economic opportunities this strategic blueprint will bring to Asia and Europe.
