The dinner event brought together many provincial and city governmental and semi-governmental organizations, as well as Chinese and international businessmen together. This event serves as another example where Finnish Business Council Guangdong is creating connections for its members’ benefit. These connections might provide FBCGD members a chance to promote their business and solve problems that require help from the various levels and functions of the Chinese government.

The event was held in Panyu, Guangzhou on Thursday 28 August 2014.
