High-value opportunities in mainland China

The High Value Opportunities (HVO) programme 

UKTI’s High Value Opportunities programme is focusing on a number of priority areas in key sectors in mainland China, including healthcare, transportation, energy and sustainable urban development. These areas present significant opportunities for UK companies in China, and are linked closely to the priorities in the five-year plan. The programme aims to identify a pipeline of major projects in each of these areas and provide targeted support that will help UK companies identify opportunities and win business. See:

The High Value Opportunities programme helps UK businesses access large scale overseas procurement projects. It identifies opportunities as they become available and helps businesses secure contracts.

The service can benefit your business by:

  • providing information and support on around 100 major projects, and a clear route to win business from them

  • letting you know about projects at an early stage, giving you a competitive advantage

  • researching and validating projects, saving you time and resources

How the service works
