Cayman forging China links

Cayman mutual funds and investment structures represent a noteworthy portion of inward investment into China and to that end, representatives from Cayman Islands law firm Higgs Johnson Truman Bodden & Co were among the delegates who attended the 13th Annual Trade and Investment Conference held from 8 to 11 September 2009 in Xiamen, China.

Benjamin Wrench and Wilton McDonald from Higgs Johnson Truman Bodden & Co attended the conference with a number of other individuals from the Cayman Islands including Rex Rankine of RBR Director Services.

The conference, which was attended by approximately 25,000 delegates from all corners of the globe, was designed to showcase and facilitate Chinese inward and outward investment.

China is becoming an increasingly important powerhouse in the global economy and is continuing to develop its links with the Caribbean.

After the conference some delegates from Cayman and the US flew to Beijing for a series of meetings with the China Investment Promotion Agency and the Ministry of Commerce.
