Webinar: European Business in China – Business Confidence Survey 2021

Dear Member or Friend of the Netherlands China Business Council,

The EU-China Business Association and the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce have the pleasure to invite you to our webinar focused on the results of the annual Business Confidence Survey 2021 of European Business in China. The survey was conducted by the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, in cooperation with Roland Berger.

This event is supported by the Netherlands China Business Council and will take place on 

June 24, 2021 at 10:00 hrs CET.

After surviving the COVID-19 pandemic, European companies in China found themselves in a resurgent market that was able to get production back online, and are building resilience in China to secure their position in the market. However, the still-looming economic consequences of the pandemic, an increasingly politicised business environment, decoupling and tech divergence, and long-standing concerns over market access, SOEs and a level playing field still present major concerns to European companies moving forward.

Join the event to learn the latest data collected from the European business community in China in the following areas: The impact of the pandemic Revenue and profitabilit Supply chain shifts and decoupling The politicisation of business Decarbonisation RCEP Market access developments Level-playing field and SOE reform concerns IPR protection and enforcement HR concerns
