Buffeted by Covid; Brexit looming; unpredictable politics. There's certainly no shortage of big picture uncertainty for British business in Asia. Add to that an ever developing customer base, whether B2B or B2C, technological change which can disrupt and develop, expectations of companies going beyond profits into areas of social and climate responsibility and employees whose priorities are those of different generations, and the background for British business in Asia over the next few years has plenty going on.
So what will the future look like? Who will be selling what to whom and where? Who will be making and growing things; how will business manage itself, and who will management be answerable to - shareholders, regulators, governments?
Our event today will look at these issues from the perspectives of British businesses in China and Japan. Two key markets for the UK, and both with their own challenges. This joint Chamber event is co-hosted by BCCC and BCCJ.
