About the Forum

We are pleased to announce that 2016 Golden Silk Road Global Brand Forum will be host in Central Hall Westminster London from 21st -22nd November 2016.

GSRF is a summit of British and Chinese companies, on which approximately 100 Global TOP 500 brand companies will come from China aiming to launch their business in London and pursue wide cooperation opportunities with British companies and organizations. Top Chinese companies like Haier, Qingdao and China CEFC Energy, Alibaba, Bank of China, Wanda Group and China Communication Construction Corporation have confirmed to join us. The organization committee is also going to release the 2016 Golden Silk Road Brand Top 500 list during the forum, which we expect more than 100 local British companies will also join to meet with all these Chinese brands.

This forum is held during the "Golden Era" between China-UK comprehensive strategic partnership after Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to the UK. China's belt and road initiative is an excellent opportunity for cooperation between China and UK in order to make the cake of mutual interests larger and enable both countries to grow.

GSRF therefore will be an outstanding platform for companies in London and Chinese top brands to have a deep understanding about each other, promote potential cooperation and pursue mutual benefits in the future. During this forum, 8 theme summits varying from financial investment, internet finance, city cooperation, global healthcare industry, infrastructure construction to transportation industry will be held. A workshop will also be arranged to allow all the companies to network with each other and discuss business.
