Tougher business conditions, both globally and in China, have led to diminished financial performance for European companies in China in recent years. The key market dynamics contributing to these results include:

  • Slower economic growth in European and Chinese markets; 
  • Labour costs; 
  • Competition from privately-owned Chinese companies.

The relatively poor financial results are further exacerbated by the regulatory environment.

However, despite many of the lowest business confidence results since the onset of the global economic downturn, China continues to be a priority in global strategies and a mainstay for global revenue generation. European companies remain committed to the Chinese market.

This survey compiled responses from 526 European Chamber member companies and was produced in partnership with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. European Chamber members are knowledge leaders in their areas of industry, and are the chief contributors to the Chamber's influential publications. Make your contribution by becoming a member.
