Scottish Pacific Tradeline recently hosted a trade information evening for many of our clients, suppliers and prospects at the Canton Fair in Guangzhou, China.
The cocktail function was held at the lovely Garden Hotel, with Tradeline providing an enjoyable and informative evening for all 48 attendees. Our guest speaker for the evening was Professor Tim Hurney of the International Business and Trade at Jinan University in Guangzhou.
Prof. Hurney provided valuable insight into current economic trends in Australia, China, USA and the UK.
Craig Michie (Head of Trade Finance at Scottish Pacific) engaged the audience with a discussion on the contribution of SMEs to economies and the issues they face when accessing capital.
Our China team pulled out all the stops and worked tirelessly to make sure all of our guests took something substantial from the evening. We hope this was the first of many successful functions in China – it provided an excellent opportunity for networking, developing critical analysis of global trade and sharing information.
