On June 5, 2020, representatives from Edinburgh International Investments (EII) attended the Members’ Fireside Chat held by the British Chamber of Commerce, Guangdong (BritCham GD). Despite COVID-19, representatives from all walks of life as chamber members of the BritCham GD were open and active to meet and establish business relations while practicing social distancing.
After the opening speech by the Shenzhen Representative of the BritCham GD, each company made a presentation to introduce their own business. In this session, EII’s representative introduced its business streams and main projects as well as the experience and expertise to help more companies develop within the healthcare industry in China. At the end, EII’s representative warmly wished that all the guests STAY HEALTHY during this special pandemic period.
Subsequently, EII’s representative chaired the Panel Discussion where they discussed the opportunities and challenges for corporate development, business transformation, and future plans during a pandemic. The guests were from various industries including education, e-commerce, real estate, life sciences, media, professional services, logistics, and manufacturing and they shared their insights about response plans and transformational services. For example, the educational enterprises offered online/offline blended curriculum and also provided corresponding courses on hygiene.
Pre-COVID-19, companies were faced with uncertainty and rapid changes in the world, but COVID-19 has added more uncertainty to an already complicated business environment. Although we still need to continue social distancing practices for the time being, it is particularly important to maintian the smooth exchange of information under these uncertain circumstances.
