Mazars partner Jack Clipsham attends the Lord Mayor of the City of London’s visit to China 2010

Mazars is part of the official delegation that will meet key high-level contacts during a ten-day tour that will include Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Chengdu and Beijing, concluding with a high-profile visit to the Shanghai Expo 2010 as part of the UK financial and professional services week.

Jack Clipsham, head of Corporate Finance for Asia-Pacific, is part of the business delegation headed by the Lord Mayor of London Nick Anstee to China on Sept. 8-18.

The delegation, comprising over 50 leading representatives of the Britain-based financial and professional services industry, will meet key figures in banking, insurance and financial services as well regulators and political leaders. The lord mayor's visit will showcase how Britain and China can forge a closer working relationship and maximize the mutual benefits obtained from business opportunities in areas such as M&A advisory, asset management, green finance, legal services, rural finance, banking and maritime services.

"The partnership between the UK and China is one of mutual benefits, of sharing knowledge and skills to enhance the development of financial and professional services in both our countries," Anstee, who is the ambassador to the Britain-based financial and professional services industry, said.

"Going forward, there are tremendous opportunities for the Chinese marketplace but City firms are also ideally placed to use their vast experience to help develop the innovative financial products and improved corporate governance that will be needed as China's financial services industry continues to expand," he added.
