China is the great economic success story of the past 30 years. It is currently the world’s second largest economy and the most populous country with over 1.35 billion citizens.
China’s economy has developed at an unprecedented rate, businesses and consumers are developing an appetite for technology, systems, services and infrastructure that cannot be satisfied by domestic suppliers.
Beijing is the second largest Chinese city by urban population (16 million) after Shanghai (20 million) and is the nation's political, cultural, and educational centre.
It is home to the headquarters of most of China's largest state-owned companies, and is a major hub for the national highway and high-speed rail networks.
Shanghai is the economic capital of China and is a major trade, industrial, education and transport hub, with a well-developed commercial infrastructure. China’s scientific and economic institutions are all located in Shanghai.
Our expert Trade Team in Belfast will be on-hand with advice and guidance to prepare for the mission.
