LONDON, August 26, 2011 -

British Institute of Technology & E-commerce (B|I|T|E) is building further on its hugely successful World Hi-Tech forum.   This programme launched in 2008 has now delivered country specific knowledge exchange and business development forum to well over 1000 “C” level executives and government ministers and advisers.

China World Hi-tech Forum 2009 focused on China and B|I|T|E has been welcoming delegations from China since that time to discuss prospective business opportunities to partner with and facilitate between the UK and China markets.  Most recently B|I|T|E welcomed a delegation from the Academy of Equipment Command and Technology looking at procurement systems opportunities and from Hebei province provincial government seeking to share knowledge and business development opportunities in Information systems security management software and hardware solutions.

B|I|T|E is very pleased to announce that it will welcome a delegation of over 20 senior Chinese government, academicians and businessmen on the 31st August to discuss:

  1. Current E-commerce systems in the UK
  2. Briefing about current IT technologies / information industry developments & challenges
  3. Advanced IT technologies for cost control & resources optimization for modern industries
  4. Intelligent & interactive systems technologies for commercial / new industrial sectors  

This type expertise lies at the heart of the B|I|T|E knowledge base and we are pleased that  this has been recognised in China through the many representatives we have received with a desire to work in partnership with us.

The next World Hi-Tech Forum 2012 will be focused on Turkey.
