Talks to help businesses in China

Two free events exploring the opportunities for companies in China are being held at University Centre Shrewsbury.

Mark Schneider will discuss trends in the medical and healthcare sector in China, and the business opportunities being created by them, on Thursday February 22.

Then, on Thursday March 8, a second talk will take place focusing on the environmental consequences of industrialisation and urbanisation in China, the innovative solutions being sought, and how businesses can take advantage of these developments.

Both events start at 6pm, are open to everyone, and are being presented at Guildhall, UCS’s learning and research base in Frankwell Quay.

Mark has been involved in innovation and knowledge transfer for more than 20 years. During that time he has managed a number of complex projects and services, involving a multitude of partners and stakeholders in the UK, Europe and China.

Since May 2013, he has been working with partners in China to help West Midlands’ organisations develop business, research and development, as well as civic links with Chinese regions and cities.

He said: “The medical/health sector in China is currently undergoing a period of transformation in response to an ageing population, a middle class which is increasing in wealth and size, as well as the opening up of the Chinese state to western medical technology and approaches.

“In addition, China has undergone massive levels of industrialisation and urbanisation in the last 20 years; both have had a dramatic impact on the country’s environment, particularly its water and air quality. The Chinese government recognises that these issues are having an impact on the economy and are likely to reduce growth and prosperity in the future, and thus pioneering solutions are being sought.

“These talks will look at the changes, the responses needed and how they are providing unique opportunities for British companies.”

Admission is free but booking is essential for both ‘Trends in the Medical/Healthcare Sector in China: the Business Opportunities Being Created and How to Take Advantage of Them’ and ‘Industrialisation and Urbanisation in China and their Environmental Consequences: the Business Opportunities for Cleantech and Environmental Technology Companies and How to Take Advantage of Them’.
