Business experts from China will host three seminars in Ireland next week to advise firms here on how to make the most of the Chinese market.

Experts from the Beijing-based EU SME Centre will give training to companies looking to do business in the sprawling country.

One of the evernts will taken place in Shannon on Monday next. The others are planned for Dublin and Cork. Shannon Chamber of Commerce chief executive Helen Downes said: "Attendance at the two China-focused seminars we hosted last year was extremely high, so we're delighted that Shannon has been selected as a location for this event."

Centre Director Chris Cheung said: "China is certainly not for everyone. Only by preparing thoroughly and getting to know the country and its people will.

European companies be able to capitalise on the many opportunities that still abound in the market, especially in regions other than the well-known coastal provinces." Pat Flynn
