At the end of 2022, the Chinese government issued a series of measures to ease epidemic prevention and control and shifted to normal. The Central Economic Work Conference also clarified the economic goal of "seeking progress while maintaining stability" in 2023, and more policies to support enterprises are expected to be released. However, in the early stage of strategy transformation, relevant policies domestic and abroad are still being updated and changed. Especially, the first and second quarters are still in the high epidemic period, and enterprises are still facing the pressure brought by numerous external uncertainties when their vitality has not recovered. Employment management and cost control have also become one of the most concerned issues for enterprises at this stage.
2022年末,中国政府颁布了一系列放宽疫情防控的措施,全面转向常态化防控。中央经济工作会议也明确了2023年 “稳中求进” 的经济目标,预计更多企业支持政策将发布。然而在策略转变初期,国内外相关政策仍在不断更新和变化之中,尤其第一、二季度仍处于疫情高发期,企业在元气尚未恢复之际依然面临外部众多不确定性带来的压力,用工管理及成本管控也成为现阶段企业最关心的问题之一。

Underpinned by governmental initiatives and policies to promote greener production, improve waste management, reduce energy and water consumption and reach carbon neutrality by 2060, the circular economy has become a hot topic in China.
Chinese consumers are becoming more environmentally conscious, pushing companies to be more environmentally responsible. While China is clearly taking steps towards a circular economy, the concept is still in its nascent stage and there is space for improvement. What are the implications for European SMEs doing business with China?
The EU SME Centre and the European Chamber of Commerce in China are organising an online training seminar to discuss the concept of a circular economy in China and explore the opportunities, support measures available to European SMEs as well as the challenges they are currently facing.

Insight Sharing on the European Union Foreign Subsidies Regulation

On 12 January 2023, the Foreign Subsidies Regulation (FSR) entered into force. This new set of rules for addressing distortions caused by foreign subsidies will allow the European Union (EU) to remain open to trade and investment, while aiming at ensuring a level playing field for all companies operating in the Single Market. The FSR was proposed by the Commission on 5 May 2021. Following the ordinary legislative procedure, the final text of the Regulation was adopted on 10 November 2022 by the Parliament and on 28 November 2022 by the Council.
