Panel Discussion On Doing Business With China – 26th of September

The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce has the pleasure to invite you to a panel discussion on doing business with China, featuring three SMEs who will talk about how they are succeeding in the China market. This event will take place on 26 September 2023 at 17h30 at the Cercle Royal La Concorde, Kouter 150, 9000 Gent.

The panel discussion will be followed by an opportunity to meet and talk with the Economic Representatives of Flanders in China. 

It is important for our Economic Representatives to follow the progress of all Flemish companies doing business in China, so you will have an excellent opportunity to introduce them to your company’s activities in China, or to update them on progress.
