The Chinese construction market is one of the largest construction markets in the world and it is likely to keep growing – it is forecasted to grow at an annual average of 5% until 2023. Although, green building makes up a small proportion of China´s construction industry, government targets are giving sustainable building a boost and it is becoming increasingly significant in China.
The Chinese government has demonstrated a strong commitment to making green building a top priority by promoting more energy-efficient buildings. There are some signs of progress: the implementation of the green building rating system and China´s preferential policies for green housing. These offers great potential for European SMEs operating in the sector. During this training session, organised by the EU SME Centre, EUROCHAMBRES and the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, our experts will analyse the regulatory and policy framework of the green construction sector and provide practical information for those companies interested in accessing the Chinese Green Construction Sector.
