Doing business in China conference

Athlone: Opening the Eastern Door – Doing Business in China, is a day-long conference which will explore the challenges and opportunities for Irish firms doing business in and with China.

The conference will be chaired by RTÉ journalist John Murray and takes place at the Sheraton Hotel in Athlone on June 22.

The event is being organised by FGS Chartered Accountants and will deal with legal, financial and tax issues for companies doing business with China.

FGS managing partner, Jim Mulqueen said: “The conference is a tremendous chance for business people here to interact with senior figures from the world of business in China and the agencies such as Enterprise Ireland who work in this area”.

Mr Mulqueen says the full potential of the Chinese market needs to be realised by businesses. “Our trading relationship with Asia is very important, trade between China and Ireland is worth over €2 billion annually. There is a huge market in China and tapping into its potential will bring significant benefit to business and industry here,” he added.
