This special supplement on inward investment from China to the UK has been jointly produced by The Manufacturer and Eversheds.
British manufacturing’s view of China has evolved over the past 30 years, a period of enormous social and economic change. First, China was a place to manufacture goods cheaply. In that respect, it has been a ferocious competitor. However, It has also become a market. China’s vast and growing middle class values European cars and fashions, and its manufacturers are hungry for machine tools, technology and Britain’s Lean manufacturing expertise.
This supplement is intended to help to develop your understanding and to give an insight into the skills you will need to work with Chinese companies. We hope you will find it useful.
