Business Delegation to Shanghai and Hong Kong

 Opportunity to form part of the Trade
and Investment Promotion Delegation to China (Shanghai) and Hong Kong between
the 13 and 21 October 2012. China – China is one of the biggest countries
in the world with an area of about 9.6 million km² and a population of more
than 1.343 billion (as at July 21) which accounts for 23% of the world's
population. It is also the great economic success story of the past 30 years.

China's growth has been sustained and the economy grew by circa 10.4% in 2010
and 9.2% in 2011, the best performance of all major economies. While the rise
of China is easy to acknowledge, businesses constantly need to catch up with
the speed and depth of change and development in China's large and complex
market space.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong became the Special
Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China in July 1997. It
has a total area of 1014 sq km and had a population of circa 7.15million (as at
July 2011).  Hong Kong has a free market economy and is highly dependent
on international trade and finance. With such an open economy, the global
economic slowdown also affected Hong Kong, although increasing integration with
China through trade, tourism and finance helped it to make an initial recovery
more quickly. Hong Kong's Economy expanded by 5% during 2011 and is considered
as the world's most service oriented economy with the services sectors
accounting for more than 90% of the GDP. 

Promising areas of investment, trade
and technology commercialisation with both China and Hong Kong include:
Financial and Professional Services, ICT, Environment & Renewable Energy,
Education & Training, Food & Beverages, Travel& Tourism.

Match making meetings for participants
will be organised.  Closing date for
applications is Friday 24 August 2012. Contact Abigail Mamo at GRTU is
