City of London in China

The City of London Corporation set up offices in Beijing and Shanghai over 10 years ago. Since the establishment of these offices in 2018, our China programme has continued to strengthen throughout the years.

Our China programme and its engagement is built upon the long-standing relationship between the UK and China. We engage with a wide range of stakeholders from regulators and policy makers, to the municipal governments and the financial and professional services (FPS) business community.

The Corporation’s Chair of the Policy and Resources Committee and the Rt. Hon. the Lord Mayor are key figures for our China programme, and they work closely with the team in China and London to engage with decision makers in the financial and professional services sector.

The work of our China programme is also guided by the City of London Corporation China Advisory Council - a group of senior Chinese financial sector experts who help shaping our priorities and strategic direction.

The aims of our China programme remain the same as when we initially launched the programme:

  • To highlight the UK’s vibrant and thriving financial and professional services sector
  • To increase trade and investment volume between the UK and China
  • To showcase the UK as a leading international financial and centre.
