The China Chit Chat Annual networking event is open to Chinese stduents and professionals studying and working in Bristol and Bath as well as China Bureau members.

The 2018 event will once again be held at the Arnolfini through support from the University of the West of England and is being organised by Jonathan Smith who works for Business West and is also a member of the China Bureau.

We will welcome Chris Ruffle who graduated in Chinese from Oxford in 1981, then worked in China on-and-off from 1983, first as a metal trader, then as an investor. Stamford then moved into the wine trade and set up Treaty Port Vineyards in 2004. Wine will be his focus for this event when we will learn about his journey of working in and with China although he also says that guests though are welcome to ask him about investment in China. You will find more background in the Scottish Castle Treaty Port Facebook page, or "A Decent Bottle of Wine in China" (Earnshaw Books 2015).

Chris will bring his wine for us to try so do come and join us for what will be an interesting event.
