“The Centre is a great partner of Enterprise Europe Network and, as Sicindustria team, we love working with our colleagues based in Brussels and China. We have been collaborating for many years now, always with great appreciation by our SMEs, which highly benefit from the Centre’s training sessions, expertise and consultancy. The Centre is a mine of precious knowledge for all the European SMEs interested in entering the Chinese market. They also provided support in the organisation of missions and B2B events, and we know that we can always rely on them, as their commitment represents a real added value.”

We advise the Centre strongly to our entrepreneurs already operating or starting in China because especially the tools, the guides and the FAQs are of high value to them. It is an excellent example of how such an organization should be: a constructive and result driven cooperation between different knowledge partners in favour of the EU-China business!
