PKF International recently organized an international investment summit at the Beijing Shangri-La Hotel, China entitled "One Belt One Road".

This summit discussed various ways on how to promote a "going out" strategy, how Chinese companies can succeed to invest overseas, particularly how to join the IPO market, develop overseas M&A and cultivate new investment in green technology. Speakers explained the best way to comply with both local and international rules in order to secure international trade. The summit discussed how PKF international accounting organizations help provide more comprehensive and high-quality services for Chinese companies to positively achieve a higher level of "work together and win cooperation".


The summit was attended by the leader of the Chinese institute of certified public, leader of the Chinese certified tax agents association, leader of Beijing institute of certified public accountants, together with corporate representatives and PKF partners from 13 countries including Malta.

The initiative is a direct result of China's own Silk Road economic belt and the 21st century maritime Silk Road, as previously proposed by President Xi Jinping in 2013. The belt and road initiative is more than just building roads and railways. It is about building connectivity that leads to peace, cultural harmony, prosperity and development for all. China is ready to work with all willing parties. The opening up of China to world trade has the altruistic aim of improving chances of global communication and cooperation in all kinds of areas, both economic and cultural.

Speaking at the conference, John SIM, CEO from PKF international said: "PKF international will be responding to the call of 'one belt one road', providing China with a portfolio of firms all giving highest level of professional services. Hopefully, both sides will continuously forge ahead and join hands to achieve win-win cooperation."

Chinese corporate representatives and PKF European teams including PKF Malta, PKF USA, PKF Africa, PKF Australia and Hongkong teams, as well as ASEAN teams presented their views.

Following a day filled with active discussion, Sajjad Atkhar, PKF AsPac Regional Chairman, delivered the closing speech emphasising the fact that the summit can generate new ideas and be a catalyst for overseas investment. He was confident that with the joint efforts of PKF international and other auditing companies, "we will create a thriving era of overseas investment".
