For nearly 30 years we have been helping the UK and China do business together. We focus on answering the question ‘is there a market in China for my product or service?’ and then we concentrate on introducing you to interested Chinese buyers. We use our China knowledge and network of contacts among Chinese businesses and government departments to help our clients meet decision-makers that are interested in buying their product in particular. If necessary we can help you navigate opaque regulations and provide communication support to help you conclude deals.
Essex International also manages the long standing East of England-Jiangsu partnership on behalf of Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk County Councils, helping businesses, schools, universities, vocational colleges, museums, cities and regions develop profitable partnerships. This has increased exports to China and attracted new inward investment to the East of England.
We also organise government-to-government study and training programmes to help UK and Chinese professionals exchange best practice. Every year we bring hundreds of Chinese business visitors to Essex and the East of England and our work boosts the East of England economy by £3.48 million in Gross Value Added, the equivalent of 34 full-time jobs, annually.
