MP is to host China business summit
ARGYLL and Bute MP Brendan O’Hara is set to host the first of many initiatives to promote Argyll and Bute as an excellent place to do business.
As part of Argyll Enterprise Week, Mr O’Hara will launch two China business summits to support economic growth, increasing export opportunities and encouraging inward investment in Argyll and Bute.
With the assistance of China British Business Council, the Bank of China, Skills Development Scotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Business Gateway, the event will promote opportunities available to businesses, while advising on how to navigate the cultural and bureaucratic complexities of exporting to China, and exploding some of the myths that surround it.
Mr O’Hara said: ‘The opportunities that exist in the vast highgrowth, high-value markers in Asia make these events a must for those considering branching out into Chinese markets.
‘I would be delighted for local businesses in Argyll and Bute to join me and take part in this fantastic opportunity to explore the prospects that may exist for them in the rapidly expanding and highly lucrative markets.’
As well as lectures, workshops and one-to-one advice sessions, the seminars will look at finance, logistics, networking, and legal and marketing challenges.
The events will be held in the Corran Halls, Oban, on Wednesday November 8 and Campbeltown Town Hall on Thursday November 9. Both events open at 9.30am and conclude by 1.30pm.
