2018 LSE SU CHINA-BRITAIN BUSINESS FORUM
& EMERGING CHALLENGES
Friday, 2 Feb 2018
KPMG, E14 5GL
2017 is a year dominated by a sustained world-wide economic recovery. After a series of political turbulence, both at home and abroad, the restructuring of the world economic and financial markets continues its domination in the spotlight. As the parallel forum to the successful China Development Forum, China-Britain Business Forum provides an open and professional platform for constructive discussions and engagements to promote China-Britain business co-operations and investments. Our topics aim to explore the business relations between China and Britain, with a mission to help students understand the British corporate climate, and we have never failed in achieving our goals.
This year, the Forum is co-organised by the LSE SU China Development Society and KPMG, a prestigious professional service firm and a member of the Big 4. The general theme is “Shifting Opportunities and Emerging Challenges”, and our prominent speakers from diverse backgrounds will shed light on a wide spectrum of heatedly debated issues.
