Clearwater urges UK businesses to take advantage of emerging markets


The UK must do more to engage with Chinese businesses and investors or risk being left behind and miss out on valuable growth opportunities, according to Clearwater Corporate Finance.

The call to action comes as Clearwater announces that it is to lead a UK delegation to the Global Investment Summit in March. The event will be hosted on 29th March 2012 at the China World Hotel in Beijing.

The Global Investment Summit is one of the leading events in the foreign investment calendar and will provide a platform for UK entrepreneurs and advisers to meet with Chinese businesses, investors and M&A professionals.

Mike Reeves, managing partner at Clearwater, said: “While parts of our domestic economy continue to struggle, other parts of the world are growing strongly. UK businesses need to seize the opportunity that the booming emerging markets present, in terms of trade, inward and outward investment. Our UK delegation will enable our clients and ourselves to tap into these markets and will prove to be a great vehicle for them to gain inspiration from their peers from around the world.”

The Summit is co-sponsored with the Ministry Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), one of the leading executive ministries of the State Council of China, and the China Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA).

Distinguished speakers at the event include the Vice Minister of MOFCOM, the Vice President of the China Development Bank and Dean of the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) Professor Pedro Nueno.
