“Steriline Racing also export to many other countries around the world, but are especially keen to innovate within the industry. Right now, Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Jockey club are the world centre of that innovation and Steriline Racing are especially happy to be a part of such a progressive and innovative hub. To be recognised for our achievements within China is an incredible feeling, but that won’t stop us from continuing to push boundaries in the industry.”
When asked if he had any advice for others when conducting business in China, Mr Fargher said “Knowledge, expertise and innovation are all readily accepted. If you can demonstrate that you are the leader in your field, then you will be welcomed.”
