On the 2018 Agenda:


Belt and Road Initiative

China's development project is projected to have close to a trillion dollars invested across the globe. How can European businesses understand and access the corporate opportunities?


Cross-Border Trade

Growth trends, realistic expectations, risk factors and understanding capital controls. European pension, infrastructure and sovereign funds' investment strategies for Belt and Road.



Financial Sector Liberalisation within China and in outbound investment; Addressing liquidity, credit growth and bad debts; Assessing Chinese demand for European financial platforms.

The leading China-Europe business event

Now in its 9th year, the International Capital Conference has become the premier platform for European companies to access and understand corporate opportunities arising from the Belt and Road Initiative (B&R) – President Xi Jinping’s ambitious development strategy to boost trade and economic growth between China and the rest of the world.

An estimated $900bn of Belt and Road projects are planned or underway in what is the largest overseas investment drive ever launched by a single country.

The ICC is uniquely positioned to help European businesses understand and access corporate opportunities from the B&R, China’s domestic economic growth and outbound investment in Europe.

We welcome China and Europe’s most influential corporate executives, policymakers and thought leaders to a conference of highlevel discussions combined with networking opportunities and presentations resulting in real business outcomes.

No other event offers the same prospects to meet, engage and do business with China. To date, more than 2,500 companies from China and across Europe have met at the ICC capitals of London, Paris and Beijing.
