 “The conference was a fantastic opportunity for First Names eBusiness Solutions to highlight its credentials as a European gateway to leading Chinese business professionals, government officials and politicians. We are very interested in China as we believe there is huge potential for us to do business there. Last year we toured China visiting various regions and cities to present our services, it was a very successful trip and I am very much looking forward to driving our growth there in 2014.”
