Transcending Borders:  Immigration and Investment into the UK

Date and Time: Thursday 25th April, 13.30 – 18.30 pm

Venue: Howard Kennedy LLP, 1 London Bridge, London, SE1 9BG

The debate on immigration and its impacts on the economy, local resources and community cohesion has been heightened since the Brexit referendum in 2016. Over the last 2 years EU migrants have dropped significantly but those from non-EU countries have risen considerably. UK immigration policies have been changing and will likely continue to change.

Our Panellists, who are experts in immigration, trade and investment, will share their insights on recent changes in immigration regulations, as well as highlight where immigration enhances our economy and society.

You Can Do It – Business, Trade and Investment between UK and China

Venue: WSP, The Mailbox, Level 2, 100 Wharfside Street, Birmingham B1 1RT

Date and Time:  Wednesday 1st May, 17.30 to 20.30 pm

Whilst the West Midlands is the only region in the UK to have a positive trade balance with China, we cannot afford to be complacent. Global changes are affecting China’s economy, which will impact on us. Also, as we face uncertainties over our trading relationship with Europe, we need to expand our trade with other countries, especially China.

During the evening, a panel of professional and business speakers will share their experience and insights on doing business in China, as well as economic trends in China to help you with your UK-China business strategies
