Ipswich law firm BlocksLegal LLP has staged an event at the Suffold Food Hall at Wherstead to promote export business with China.
It was held to build on the success of a House of Lords lunch in Westminster which was sponsored by BlocksLegal and hosted by Lord Sassoon of the China-Britain Business Council.
The Suffolk event was hosted by Oliver Paul from the Suffolk Food Hall, with the discussion on boosting Sino-UK exports being supported by William Kendall, High Sheriff of Suffolk.
Discussions focused on the food and drink industry in the East of England, with senior representatives from a number of businesses in the sector, together with Suffolk Chamber and the National Farmers’ Union, exploring opportunities to develop export business with China.
Also present were Chris Cotton, director of the China–Britain Business Council, and Alan Pain, regional head of UK Trade and Investment, who gave talks on how to progress with exports to China.
