In recent years, innovation has been one of the most used terms in the circle of Chinese policy makers, the reason being that in such a fast-speed environment, innovative ideas are key to unlock China’s development and strengthen its global competitiveness. For that reason, China has signed co-funding deals and rolled out policies to encourage the start-up scene in their market, especially focusing on financing new ideas and innovations in China. The most prominent funding and programs include are the ‘EU-China Co-Funding Mechanism’, the ‘National Natural Science Fund’, the ‘Bases and Talents Program’, ‘The Medium to Long-Term Plan for the Development of Science and Technology (2006-2020)’, etc. To be able to succeed in this huge but complicated market, a good understanding of the innovation landscape and its funding opportunities in China is essential.

Chinese government authorities have recently issued a series of policies and draft amendments to push forward the establishment of the Social Credit System (SCS). Foreign enterprises are particularly concerned at how the SCS could affect the business operation of their Chinese subsidiaries.

As the Social Credit System will be largely in place by the end of 2020, SCS is no longer just a vision. With the window of opportunity rapidly closing for companies to prepare for these regulatory ratings, companies need to stay alert for the upcoming the SCS and expect that heavy non-compliance will immediately lead to a listing as a distrusted entity, followed by costly sanctions.

The European Chamber is delighted to invite you to attend a presentation and discussion on Trade Disputes, Uncertainties and the Impact on Supply Chains, which will take place on Friday, 29th November, from 13:30 to 15:00, at the European Chamber Shanghai office.

The world we live in now has never been more interconnected. The powerful yet unpredictable blend of trade, technology and globalisation has extended to us just as many benefits as it has risks. While some are reaping the benefits of this rapid worldwide integration, many others are stuck trying to mitigate its risks. To add another layer of complexity, businesses in China are also avoiding the adverse effects of the ongoing trade war and navigating China’s unique business environment. Is it even possible to make sense of this hypercomplexity?

Mr. Jon Cowley, an International Trade Partner from Baker& McKenzie Hong Kong, will share critical insights on how current trade disputes and uncertainties are affecting company supply chains across China and APAC and what are the strategies one can adopt to surpass resulting challenges. If you would like to further your ability to navigate today’s complex business environment with the latest insights on trade developments, we strongly encourage you to join our event!
