Zhongguancun 100 Delegation visit techUK

techUK together with the Department for International Trade welcomed the Zhongguancun 100 delegation for a seminar on the UK tech opportunity for Chinese companies.

Zhongguangcun (pronounced ‘Jong-gwan-tsun’) is a science and technology park in Beijing, widely regarded as ‘China's Silicon Valley’. In June 2010, the park’s 100 leading companies formed a group called the ‘100 Club’, bringing together some of China’s most innovative technology. The Club’s members have significant ambitions, and the resources to go global.insight photo

A select group of leaders from ‘100 Club’ companies are visiting the UK to: 1) understand the business environment post Brexit, and explore opportunities with UK companies that can support the growth of their global businesses; and 2) learn from the experiences of successful UK companies, with a particular focus on technology and innovation and corporate governance

The morning seminar consisted of a welcome by Simon Spier, Head of International Trade at techUK. This was followed by an introduction from the delegation leader Wang Zialon, President of Time Group Inc.

Michael Charlton, Managing Director of Value Group and Chief Investment Officer at DIT provided opening remarks. This was followed by Mark Beresford, DIT Specialist in Technology and Smart Cities and Tony Hughes, Dealmaker at DIT who explained the significant opportunity for international tech companies to flourish in the UK.

The event was concluded by Julian David, CEO of techUK, who provided an analysis of the current tech market in the UK and the future opportunities as well as detailing the support that techUK offers companies in their UK growth.
