England China Business Forum

People who are interested in working, sharing and collaborating with others on business activities between China and the UK

ECBF was launched in Birmingham in 2013.  Since then ECBF has organised regular events on doing business and making investment to and from China.  We place great emphasis on ‘You can do it’ by inviting experienced British and Chinese businesses and professionals to share their practical experience of doing business both in the UK and China.

ECBF aims to


Provide a platform for Chinese and British businesses and professionals to meet, share, collaborate and create opportunities


Encourage Chinese and British students to experience business culture and practice in the UK and China


Contribute to collaborative efforts by appropriate local and regional bodies in the UK and China


Our Team

We are a group of people who passionately believe in collaborating with each other to share experience and stimulate business opportunities, both large and small, between England and China.  We believe in building and sustaining long term business relationships that result in mutual benefits.


ECBF has active local groups in Birmingham and London. The local groups meet regularly to plan events. All the Directors and members of ECBF Planning Team work voluntarily on ECBF matters and activities.  We do not have a membership fee nor a members roster.  We encourage people who want to encourage trade between England and China to get together, get organised and start doing things collaboratively.


ECBF is registered as a not for profit limited company.​


Bridging the gap

Bridging the gap, a single purpose we serve,

Diverse in culture, united in verve,

Political neutrality is our code of conduct,

Volunteering our time, with no profit to deduct.


Collaboration is what we believe,

Inbound and outbound, we look both ways to achieve,

An analytical view to minimise disinformation,

East and West, working towards a unified notion.


Bridging the gap, in our value system and culture,

Independent in thought, collective by nature,

Our business mindset, driven by this resolve,

To create a world where differing and equally valid aspirations revolve.
