Chinese opportunities for smaller companies

08 January 2013

Supply chain discusisonsSmaller businesses are being offered a unique opportunity to showcase their nuclear skills to a delegation of Chinese experts who are visiting the UK next month (February 2013). 

The delegation consists of nuclear decision-makers from the commercial and policy sectors, who are in the country for a week of meetings with UK individuals and companies involved in decommissioning and waste management. 

Organised jointly by the NDA and the Government's UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) arm, the focus is on maximising opportunities for British companies in China through sharing learning and expertise. 

To support the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) community in particular, a day of presentations has been organised at the NDA's Harwell site on Thursday 7 February, which will be hosted by Research Sites Restoration Ltd. 

Any SME companies interested in participating in this one-off opportunity should email the NDA's SME Champion Ron Gorham at providing details, in less than 500 words, of their relevant experience, and why they should be considered. A maximum of 15 companies will be selected to make 15-minute presentations. There is a no cost involved and applications should be received no later than Monday 14 January. 

NDA SME Champion Ron Gorham said:

"This is a fantastic opportunity, enabling face-to-face meetings with a range of key Chinese decision-makers and will enable some of our smaller, innovative businesses to demonstrate the expertise that is already putting the UK at the forefront of the global decommissioning market." 

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) works with UK-based businesses to ensure their success in international markets, and encourage the best overseas companies to look to the UK as their global partner of choice.
