Jill Rigg has many years’ experience in China commencing with the opening of a China consultancy arm of her then business in Hong Kong.   She was the first foreign woman in China assisting in the development and introduction of foreign organizations to form JOINT VENTURES with mainland SOEs.

This was commenced in 1982, shortly after Deng Xiaoping adopted his open door policy to the West and continued over a ten year period.  She worked with senior personnel within CCPIT (China Council for the promotion of International Trade), MOFCOM (Ministry of Commerce – People’s Republic of China) and MOFERT (Ministry of Foreign Economy, Relations and Trade).

She was successful in concluding a number of high-level business deals on behalf of both Government and private sector in the Oil & Gas industry, trading and banking industries and she later was a pioneer of the recruitment industry in China as well as Hong Kong.
