First Law International has just concluded its semi-annual FLI NET Asia Pacific Partners' Conference held in Shanghai (September 19th and 20th) in conjunction with the Belgian Delegation of the Commercial Mission to the World Expo in Shanghai.
With an impressive presence of fellow FLI NET partners from Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and our new Chinese hosts, Zhong Yin Law Firm, FLI has made a wonderful impression with the Belgian Ministers and the delegation of over 50 Belgian heads of industry.
During the highly anticipated private reception at the one of Shanghai's trendiest theme restaurants, Lost Heaven, FLI NET Partners not only created links with a number of prospective clients from Belgium, but also met existing clients of our gracious Chinese hosts who took the initiative of inviting their significant contacts to the event including AXA - Mimmetal Assurance (fully autonomous pension/insurance carrier); Arrow Electronics Distribution (US Fortune Company); and CGGC (power/construction company). This truly international array of successful business representatives added a "global feel" to the event and contributed to the overall success of that social networking evening.
Given this unique opportunity, FLI is also very proud to have audited a top-rated firm from Hong-Kong with whom FLI has been in advance discussion as well as a new candidate for Vietnam, both of whom also travelled to join the event in Shanghai.
With this a backdrop, FLI held two plenary sessions on September 20th with all its Asian Partners. The meetings focused on creating ways to work closer together and optimize the force of the Network to attract more and better business opportunities not only for the Asia Pacific region but throughout our FLI universe.
This memorable conference concluded with a gala reception dinner during which FLI's Principal, Mr. Orlando Casares, took the opportunity to recognize the achievements of our regional member firms. FLI NET Chinese partners were awarded with the "Distinguished Host Partner Award" for their outstanding and proactive organization of the event and FLI NET Malaysian partners with the "Most Thriving Regional Partner's Achievement Award" for their recent growth in Indonesia and Singapore.
FLI NET - makes it possible!
