European Business in China Position Paper 2019/2020

Cover

The European Business in China – Position Paper (Position Paper) is the European Chamber’s primary annual publication.

One of the biggest challenges facing European companies in China is the perpetuation of a legal regime that distinguishes companies by ownership and favours state-owned over private and local over foreign. The continuation of this system is doing little to inspire the European business communities’ long-term confidence in China’s economy.

Fortunately, there are some signs that a re-examination of China’s current economic course is needed, with loud and prominent voices from within the government having voiced support for the concept of ‘competitive neutrality’, a principle that government should not provide special treatment to any given enterprise. Embracing this idea, while also reinvigorating SOE reform, can begin to resolve some of the foundational problems that are limiting China’s development.

In this Position Paper, the European Chamber has proposed a series of bold recommendations to the Chinese Government to create the kind of business environment in China in which all companies can thrive.
