We recently helped major British energy companies gain trading licences in China, which is likely to generate billions of pounds in revenues over the next decade. Subsequently, a number of British companies are looking to increase their presence in China, with one company looking to operate around 1,500 petrol stations in China by 2025 and another aiming to add 1,000 petrol stations in China over the next five years.</p>
