Video Message by H.E. Ambassador Liu Xiaoming at the Dinner in Celebration of the 2020 British Business Awards: Join Hands to Tackle the Challenges of Our Times
29 October 2020

Chairman Moore,

Minister Stuart,

Ambassador Wilson,

Chinese and British Entrepreneurs,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Dear Friends:

It is a real delight to join you online in celebration of the 2020 British Business Awards.

On behalf of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, let me begin by extending our warm congratulations to all the winners. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to the British Chamber of Commerce in China for your hard work.

In the past 12 years since its launch, the British Business Awards has witnessed the remarkable achievements of China-UK cooperation in trade and investment. It has become a symbol of the pioneering spirit and relentless efforts of the entrepreneurs of both our two countries.

The special Chinese Investor in the UK Award has played a positive role in encouraging Chinese investment to the UK.

By the end of 2019, direct Chinese investment to the UK reached 17.14 billion US dollars, increasing about twenty times in ten years. The UK has become the second largest destination for Chinese investment in Europe.

Today, the world is experiencing the most profound changes in a century, which are intertwined with the raging pandemic. Mankind is facing unprecedented challenges.

It is my sincere hope that Chinese and British entrepreneurs will join hands to overcome the difficulties and write more splendid chapters of China-UK win-win cooperation!

Thank you!
