At the invitation of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, China Taiping Insurance (UK) Co Ltd. participated in all three events. The 2017 Beijing-Shanghai-Guangzhou Overseas Student Preparation Events acted as a platform for China Taiping Insurance (UK) Co Ltd. to communicate with students face-to-face; to share our knowledge and experience of British daily life; to give those young excited future talents safety tips on traveling abroad; and to introduce our newly-developed Student Personal Accident Insurance products at the same time.
