Creative Tech Mission to China

Leaders of London's fastest growing, innovative Creative companies head to China from 19–24 May to explore opportunities

Led by Amrit Kang, Trade Manager and Creative Specialist at London & Partners, some of our fastest growing, innovative Creative Tech entrepreneurs will be travelling to China to identify partnerships and explore business opportunities, as part of the Mayor’s International Business Programme. Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor of London for Business will also be accompanying the delegation.

London and China have much in common. Like London, China has one of the most advanced creative and digital markets in the world. With GDP growth of 6.3%, it is one of the fastest growing economies globally, as well as being the second largest source country for Foreign Direct Investment into London.

Like China, London is one of the world’s leading tech hubs with the largest tech ecosystem in Europe. The city was recently recognised as the ‘Unicorn Capital of Europe’, with a thriving ecosystem supporting 17 companies to surpass the $1bn valuation mark since 2010.

The delegation will be visiting Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Shanghai, which are leading cities for the creative industry. These cities have been recognised for their tremendous growth and contribution to economic development.

We look forward to meeting with key corporates and leaders locally to collaborate further, to explore opportunities between London and these great cities and to show that #LondonIsOpen for business.
