Free Webinar: “EU-China Investment Agreement – What’s in it for European Businesses?”

18 February 2021 @ 10:00 - 11:00

 

The EU-China Business Association (EUCBA), the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) and the Netherlands China Business Council have the pleasure to jointly invite you to the webinar “EU-China Investment Agreement – What’s in it for European Businesses?”
The webinar will take place on February 18th, from 10:00 to 11:00 hrs (CET), via Zoom.

At the end of last year, the European Union and China concluded the negotiations and reached agreement in principle on the Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI). The agreement grants EU investors a greater level of access to China’s market in existing sectors, as well as offering some significant new market openings, such as in the manufacturing, services, telecommunications (cloud services), financial services, private healthcare, and environmental services sectors, among others.  The CAI will replace all current bilateral investment agreements with EU countries, offering a uniform legal framework for European companies in China.
