Open Beijing Project is encouraging opportunities between China and foreign companies.

Products of Change members can join a Zoom meeting on Wednesday 3 March to find out more about Open Beijing; a new project to introduce the advantages of doing sustainable business in Beijing. The Open Beijing Project is hosted by Beijing’s Bureau of Commerce, and one of its missions is to introduce the advantages of Beijing’s business environment and explore cross-industry cooperation opportunities between Chinese and foreign companies in the field of professional services. The project also aims to keep foreign enterprises informed about new policies and to streamline the flow of business by matching up resources and establishing sustainable business models. Open Beijing has already been working with the Children’s Media Conference (CMC), sponsoring a session at last year’s Animation Business Conference on the development and financing of animation projects, both UK and international. Products of Change has been invited to work with the Open Beijing Project around the subject of sustainability, and all members are invited to join the conversation Wednesday 3 March at 9am GMT.
