This morning session will offer attendees a chance to meet the delegation from the CEAB, which includes senior representatives of Chinese businesses currently only operating within London and now looking to explore the potential of the UK regions. Businesses include the Chinese Agricultural Bank, the Chinese Bank of Communications and PetroChina International.
