The Chamber’s ‘Business After Hours Club’ is holding the seminar entitled ‘Doing Business in China’ in the Carroll Building on DkIT Wednesday, May 18 at 6pm.

The programme for the evening includes a tour of the Carroll building by Dr Bob McKiernan, Head of School of Informatics and Creative Arts.

There will also be two presentations on ‘Doing Business in China’ including “Managing manufacturing there” by Ciaran Herr of Horseware and “China in my supply chain” by Paul Jevens from The Hangar Company.

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session with Mr Herr, Mr Jevens and Rocky Meng of Satir.

Satir is a Chinese infrared technology company, which has its European headquarters in Dundalk.

According to Dundalk Chamber CEO Bill Tosh, Dundalk is uniquely positioned to develop business ties with China due to the presence of Satir and the large numbers of Chinese students attending DkIT. For more details call 042-9336343.
