Queen’s means business for UK and China
Representatives from Queen’s University Management School will host a major networking forum in London on Tuesday (24 May) to address the role of higher education and entrepreneurship in building science and technology links with the country.
The China Britain Business Council, the China Innovation and Development Association and the British Council are also involved in organising the event.
Keynote speakers will include Professor Richard Harrison, Director of Queen's University Management School and Chair of the University’s China Management Research Institute (CMRI), and the Institute’s Director, Dr Yu Xiong.
The CMRI encourages local entrepreneurs to look towards China as a source of new trading partners and markets and undertakes education exchange and research programmes. The Institute works with a diversity of Chinese organisations, including educational institutions, businesses and local government.
Professor Harrison described Tuesday’s forum as “a unique opportunity” to enhance business links between the United Kingdom and China.
He said: "China is an increasingly important economy on the world stage and is emerging as a major research and education centre, which is investing heavily in science and technology.
“The fact that we at Queen’s were invited to host this event with such prestigious partners recognises our work in leading research into Chinese management and business practices.
“Next week’s discussions will provide an excellent opportunity for the business and science communities in both the UK and China to explore future areas of research collaboration and business partnership.”
The Embassy’s Minister Counsellor for Science and Technology, Mr Futao Chen, will also address the forum, at which he will reveal planned developments in science and technology in China over the next five years.
