The balance of economic power in the world continues to shift to the East and the 21st century looks to see the continued emergence of China as the world's next economic superpower. With the world's largest population and an economy that has already outstripped all but one to be the 2nd largest in the world, the investment opportunities in China are unrivalled.

The economy continues to grow at an impressive rate, and is modernising and diversifying bringing new opportunities and industries and the demands that come with it. There is a large and growing middle class with a population the size of the USA, that are hungry for luxury and prestige international brands. The history and reputation of Pitman Training as an international education provider, means we are particularly well positioned to be the training provider of choice for Chinese employers and employees that desire to learn to work more proficiently in an English language environment.


There are number of key regions within China that are prime targets for expansion for Pitman Training. The size and development of the major urban areas of the Chinese mainland mean there are a huge number of large Chinese owned and multinational companies that need high calibre support staff that can work in both the local languages and English.

Because of it's historical ties to the UK, the developed and substantial service and financial industry, and the commonality of English language, we are particularly keen to find partners in Hong Kong. As one of the four Asian Tiger economies, it is a prime target for Pitman Training expansion over the next 12 months.

We are also looking for organisations to partner with that have the local knowledge and resources to expand the brand across all of the other major regions of China. If you are this organisation then please get in touch and we would be delighted to work with you.
