About the event

Join DIT Southwest to find out more on the opportunities in China for businesses in the water, environmental and infrastructure sector from Jill Liang and Jeremy Randall.


Jill Liang joined the Department for International Trade in 2012 and has worked in the British Consulate-General Shanghai ever since. She started as Senior Trade and Investment Officer for Environment and Water in East China, and became double-hatted for both trade and investment in 2014. Now she leads the environment and water sector in DIT China but also actively promotes Chinese outbound investment from East China to the UK in the infrastructure sector. She has accumulated many contacts and resources from the environment and water sector in China over the years and leads many events and missions.


Jeremy Randall has been working in the water and environment industry for over 40 years. Having gained an MSc in Soil and Water Engineering at Cranfield, Jeremy initially worked in product support, business development and project management for a multi-national company. Based in the UK, his business responsibilities grew to include Africa, MiddleEast and Europe. 
In 1998 he started his company RAW, which became a leading specialist in contamination remediation and response clean up. In 2010 he started to explore the potential for contamination clean up in China, which lead to a RAW office opening Shanghai in 2012. Since then the significant challenges of establishing a business in China have been Jeremy’s focus. 
In China RAW has successfully treated a wide range of recalcitrant contaminants ranging from chrome VI, mercury, cyanide to organics. In one recent project RAW treated 70,000 cubic metres of contaminated sticky clay at rates of up to 115 tonnes per hour. RAW is in partnership with one of China’s largest construction companies, SCG.


There is also an opportunity for a 1-2-1 meeting with Jill Laing (please note these appointments are limited so book early to avoid disappointment).
