Persevering through COVID19 – What can we learn from the China Experience?

Chamber News, Member News 18th March 2020

With the spread of Coronavirus growing on a daily basis, it is becoming increasingly clear how challenging the next few days, weeks and months are going to be for organisations of all sizes and sectors. Having developed strong relationships with partners and organisations in China, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce understands how important it is to learn from their experiences. We want to give our business network the opportunity to hear from professionals in Chongqing as they discuss some of the key challenges and barriers that their businesses have, and are currently still facing amidst this COVID-19 battle. It is an opportunity for Scottish firms to listen to advice, learn from experience and gain knowledge for how to progress as effectively as possible in this challenging environment.


Glasgow Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Webinar in collaboration with Chongqing Investment Promotion Centre to discuss the current challenges facing businesses, as well as understand how we can learn from our fellow counterparts in China. There will be 25 minutes of pre-prepared questions, during which panellists will share their experiences of COVID19 and discuss how businesses can continue operating, learning and collaborating throughout the uncertainty of these future weeks and months (please submit any questions before Thursday 19th March 9am via this link). There will be a final 10 minutes of live question time at the end.
