China Day 2017

Curious about business opportunities in China? Welcome to China Day at BI!

BI Norwegian Business School has over 20 years of experience in educating international leaders in China, and are, together with NHO and Abelia, hosting China Day at BI on May 5th, where Chinese and Norwegian leaders will advise businesses on how to succeed in China.

Just before Easter, the Norwegian Government, brought the largest business delegation ever to a foreign country. The backdrop was the normalisation of the bilateral relations between China and Norway and during the visit business agreements were signed, strengthening future trade and industry opportunities between the two countries. As a follow-up from this successful business delegation that BI, NHO and Abelia were part of, we invite you to join us at China Day.

Sign up and learn how to do business in China! You will also get a taste of China at our 'China Market' where you can try Chinese Food, watch a traditional Chinese dance, learn more about calligraphy, try out the strategic board game Go (Weiqi), listen to Chinese music and view a photo exhibition.

The event is open to all and free of charge, but you need to register
