Event Introduction

While opening up its market to the rest of the world, China is actively expanding its overseas investment, with a large portion of which in the UK. Based on the two countries’ close cooperative relationship, China has become the sixth largest foreign investment source of the UK and the third largest investment source of London since 2011. The British companies also received their government’s significant support to enter the Chinese market. Apart from these, there is still great potential for cooperation in infrastructure, finance, high-tech, information, energy, medicine and many other industries.


London 2012 Olympic Games is providing more opportunities and space for the Sino-British investment and trade. However, under the complicated international economic situation, the two countries need to fully consider the risks and challenges within the cooperation. Active communication and dialogues thus become even more important. In order to create a platform for government officials, industrial elites and scholars from both countries to have in-depth dialogues, Caixin Media, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and British Consulate-General Shanghai co-host this forum “Olympic Economy: Sino-British Trade & Investment Summit”, bringing together all parties’ wisdom to better explore the unique opportunity brought by the Olympics.
