Since 2007 the British Music Industry and Department for International Trade (DIT) supported by China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) have been running Trade Missions to China where a variety of UK Record Labels, Publishing Companies, Management Companies and Artists as well as other Industry Representatives have travelled to China to meet with the Chinese Music Industry. They have a week-long series of presentations from all parts of the Chinese Music Industry, with networking and bespoke meetings arranged with the aim of increasing business opportunities between the two countries.
