Chinese investors attend business round table in Sharjah

UAE, April 21, 2019

The Sharjah FDI Office and Invest in Sharjah, in collaboration with the Chinese Business Council, recently organised the Sharjah–China "Belt & Road" Business Round Table at the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said a report.

A Chinese delegation of 140 businesspersons to the event was led by Lei Jin, economic and commercial counsellor of the Consulate-General of China, and Shaoguo Han, vice president, CNPC International, on behalf of the Chinese Business Council, reported state news agency Wam.

Among other important attendees were senior representatives from Sharjah’s government entities, including Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, executive chairman of the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Shurooq; Waleed Abdel Rahman BuKhatir, second vice chairman of the Sharjah Chamber and Commerce Industry, and Mohamed Juma Al Musharrkh, CEO of Invest in Sharjah, the entity responsible for intensifying Sharjah Government’s efforts to promote the emirate’s business and investment opportunities in key international markets.

The purpose of the roundtable was to outline new partnerships and investment opportunities for Chinese businesses, facilitated by the Sharjah’s government and private sector entities, as well as the emirate’s economic free zones, which can provide existing and new investors from China direct access into local markets through Sharjah, and then grow their regional and global operations.

It comes on the heels of the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to boost investment and trade between the two countries, which coincided with the visit last July of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
