European Union Chamber of Commerce in China Celebrates its 10th Anniversary

Beijing, 5th November 2010 -- The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China celebrates its 10th Anniversary in Beijing today.

Founded in 2000 by 51 European companies in China, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China now represents over 1,500 member companies. Ten years after its foundation, the European Chamber now serves members in some seven chapters: Beijing, Chengdu, Nanjing, Pearl River Delta, Shanghai, Shenyang and Tianjin. With 34 Working Groups and nine China Desks, the European Chamber produces influential annual documents such as European Business in China Position Paper, the Business Confidence Survey and specific issue-based publications. 

As the independent voice of European business in China, the Chamber has established itself as a key stakeholder in EU-China business and trade relations. Through close cooperation with the European Commission and the EU Delegation in Beijing, and thanks to the continued support of the Chinese Ministry of Commerce and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, the Chamber continues to directly and effectively serve its member companies.

The European Chamber is committed to connecting European business in China with the relevant Chinese authorities for the improvement of China’s business environment. As such, the Chamber shares member company recommendations and concerns with the Chinese government through public consultations, workshops and high-level meetings.

On the occasion of its 10th Anniversary, the Chamber is holding events across China. In Beijing, the Chamber is proud to host a Business Conference “China 2020: The Road Ahead” and a Gala Ball “Sea of Stars.” The 10th Anniversary Business Conference will feature policymakers, business leaders and leading academics sharing their insights on the future of Sino-European business and set the Chamber’s course in the years to come. Lord Peter Mandelson will draw on his rich experience at the heart of EU-China trade relations to address conference participants, whereas Chief Economist of the Deutsche Bank Group Dr. Thomas Mayer will focus on the global economy and China after the credit-driven super cycle. Dr. Long Guoqiang of the DRC of the State Council will share his perspective on the future of Chinese competitiveness. Patrick S. Kung, CEO of Greater China, Philips Electronics will discuss the implications of China’s economic growth to multinationals. Professor Horst Loechel will make remarks about financial reforms as key elements of China’s economic future.
