There has never been a better time to tap into China says Expo CEC Ltd, which is organising the ‘China Expo 2006’ business fair in London from 26-28 June 2006. It has teamed up with UK Trade & Investment to promote its ‘China Business Guide’ which suggests companies doing business in China should basically leave their preconceptions at home.
