Anybody that reads—or even just flicks through—our recently published Position Paper 2021/2022 will see that access to public procurement is a common concern for many of our member companies. In some industries, direct barriers like negative lists or ‘Buy China’ policies remain, while in other industries, indirect barriers like opaque procedures or onerous licensing requirements prevent participation. The September/October 2021 issue of EURObiz looks at public procurement in China, and the opportunities and challenges for European companies.

Also featured in this edition:

With all aspects of society becoming increasingly digitised, an incredible amount of personal information is now available online, and not always with the data subjects’ knowledge or consent. This can leave people exposed to exploitation or blackmail, if their data gets into the wrong hands. China is now taking steps to control how personal information gathered within its borders can be used and should be stored by businesses. The July/August 2021 issue of EURObiz looks at the Personal Information Protection Law, and the possible implications for European companies.
