Founded in 2008 the British Business Awards are held to engage the business community in China and the UK, to showcase the many successes of British business in China and Chinese business in the UK. The Awards build a better understanding of the opportunities that are present in Sino-British relations. The British Chamber of Commerce in China is the organiser, with the active support of British Government Department for International Trade and non-Government organizations including the China Britain Business Council, Confederation of British Industry, the British Exporters Association and 48 Group Club.  At the gala dinner including the 44 finalists, the China Chamber of International Commerce was represented as a key member of the BBA creating greater collaboration with the Chinese business community.

英国商业大奖成立于2008年,旨在吸引中英两国商界人士,展示在华英国企业以及在英中国企业的成功经验。该奖项很好地诠释了中英两国积极向上的合作关系。中国英国商会是这次大奖的官方组织者,同时得到了英国驻华大使馆,英国投资贸易总署,英中贸易协会,英国工商业联合会,英国出口商协会以及48家罗素集团等非政府组织的大力支持。此外,中国国际商会也积极献力,帮助英国商业大奖与中国工商界建立了更多的合作。

Speaking on the night, the Patron of the AwardsDame Barbara Woodward CMG, said, “Celebration of excellence is a great British tradition, and at the 10th Anniversary of the British Business Awards we are proud to recognise those who display innovation, enterprise and endeavour here in China and the UK. As Patron I am delighted at the depth and quality of the entries, I endorse the integrity of the process, and I congratulate the justly deserving winners of their respective Awards.”

当晚开幕词上,英国驻华大使吴百纳女士表示:“庆祝卓越成就是英国的一个伟大传统,在2018年英国商业大奖10周年庆祝晚宴之际,我们隆重表彰那些为中英两国关系展示‘创新、进取和奋进’的人们。我为每位参赛选手的深度和质量感到高兴,我认可整个选举过程的公正严谨, 并祝贺今晚的每位获奖者。”

The process of selecting the finalists and the winners of the BBA took over 10 months and was focused on being engaging, transparent and exciting. The core team from the Chamber was augmented by panel of five judges per award, who screened the applications and then interviewed in person the final five finalists allocating 40% of the weighting. Concurrently a KMPG reviewed on-line registration system drew over 6,100 unique votes accounting for 30% of the weighting. Lead judges presented a summary of key points from their interviews to a panel drawn from the supporting organisations and chaired by Mr Richard Burn, Minister for Trade from the Department of International Trade; the weighting of which was 30%. All votes were collated and tabulated by KPMG and were unknown to any single party until the night of the BBA on the 15th November 2018.

在此公开声明,历时10个月的激烈竞选,整个英国大奖赛的决赛选手和最终获奖选手的选拔过程都是公正公开,严谨透明的。一共有三个部分来衡量评审结果:第一,中国英国商会的核心评审小组由每项奖项5名评审官组成,他们审查了每位参赛选手的申请,然后亲自面试了最后5名决赛选手,共占权重的40%。第二,毕马威的在线审查系统,实时监测了超过6,100个大众选票,共占权重的30%。最后,首席评审团由英国投资贸易总署贸易部长理查德·伯恩先生主持、各评审小组提交了访谈摘要,其权重为30%。所有的选票都由毕马威公司整理,直到2018年11月15日颁奖典礼之前,任何一方都不知道最后选举结果。

Entries came for the Awards from across China, and the UK, to become the Best of British. 215 applications were made for the nine awards drawn from the full spectrum of activities reflecting the deep involvement of Britain in China, and also of Chinese companies in the UK. The education Award, sponsored by the British Council, was specifically aimed at partnerships between Chinese and British learning establishments. Other categories were judged not by sector but by the demonstration of innovation, enterprise and endeavour regardless of industry. Therefore, companies in food and finance and recycling competed with one another for ‘Company of the Year’ for example.

此次英国商业大奖赛,来自中英两国的215个参赛选手申请了九大奖项,这些奖项反映了中国和英国在商业上的卓越成就。年度最佳教育合作奖由英国文化教育协会赞助,旨在促进中英两国教育的合作。其他奖项并不仅仅是根据行业来评选,而是根据以“创新、进取和奋进”的核心来评选,因此,无论是食品饮料公司,还是金融投资企业都可以来竞选“年度最佳英国企业奖” 。

The mission of the Awards has been to ensure that everyone can take part, that the finalists are inspiring to others, and that those who win are justly proud of their achievements. The 10th Anniversary of the BBA demonstrates that celebrating success is a vital and sustainable part of the contribution of the British Chamber of Commerce to the development of Sino-UK relations.”

2018英国商业大奖名誉主席、中国英国商会副主席吉姆·詹姆斯总结道:“我要感谢所有参加2018年英国商业大奖的人。颁奖典礼的使命是确保每个人都能公平公正参加,确保决赛选手能激励他人,确保获奖者为自己的成就感到自豪。同时,英国商业大奖赛10周年庆典也同时表明,中国英国商会对促进发展中英关系做出了重要贡献。”
