A MOCK trial organised by the Sheffield and Leeds-based Northern Chapter of the Hong Kong UK Business Forum has been named International Best Initiative by the Federation of Hong Kong Business Associations Worldwide.
The trial highlighted the advantages and disadvantages of using Hong Kong as a gateway to mainland China.
Northern chapter chairman and DLA Piper partner, Josh Wong, said: “To win this award out of all the Hong Kong business forums in the world is a huge honour and demonstrates the quality of support we can offer the business community.
“China remains at the top of the list for many organisations in the UK looking to expand overseas and Hong Kong provides the ideal entry point.
“An economic powerhouse in its own right, it is also uniquely positioned as a Chinese city which has a UK business infrastructure, making the commercial transition much more straightforward.
“We work hard to ensure that our members are kept well informed of news, market intelligence and networking opportunities relevant to the market, providing a helping hand for those looking to expand their business interests into the Far East.”
