“Connecting China, Connecting the World,”

2015 JLL Beijing Gala Dinner

​JLL Beijing's 2015 gala dinner, "Connecting China, Connecting the World," was held at China World Summit Wing in Beijing on September 10 with nearly 300 clients and JLL representatives.  JLL's global board meeting was also held during the period, with all the board members attending the event. In addition, Michael Charlton, Minister Counselor and Acting Director-General of UKTI China, was invited and delivered a speech on the occasion.

The event kicked off with an exceptional Beijing opera performance. An art with more than 200 years of history  integrates all the essence of Chinese traditional art and culture, and has become a perfect channel for communicating Chinese culture across the globe. It rightly reinforces the theme of the event – "Connecting China, Connecting the World".

Like the Beijing opera, with a history of over 200 years, JLL has been flourishing in China for more than 20 years and is consistently dedicated to be a bridge and vital link between China and the rest of the world by helping overseas investors and companies to seek opportunities in China and by assisting Chinese companies going abroad. Colin Dyer, President and Chief Executive Officer of JLL, remarked: "The China market is becoming increasingly important for JLL's global business. With the increasing growth and changes of our Chinese clients, JLL is continuously expanding its service scope and capabilities in China."
