The EU SME Centre is delighted to invite you to join a special breakfast event on “Business Climate Confidence in China” on June 15, 2018 in Brussels, organised by our implementing partner – BenCham Beijing, together with China-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and Belgian-Chinese Economic and Commercial Council (BCECC).
During this event, we will cover topics related to the Sino Benelux Business Survey and to the key trends in Chinese intellectual property.
How have Benelux companies active in China performed in 2017? Are Benelux companies more impacted by new rules and regulations in China and have Benelux companies experienced any business opportunities due to governmental policies such as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI)? What do companies consider about the current business climate in China? Does China remain still an important market for Benelux businesses?
This year’s Sino Benelux Business Survey aims to answers these questions and provide insight and expectations of the Chinese market for Benelux businesses. Moreover, we will introduce the audience to the main trends in Chinese intellectual property and innovation policies and to what it means for Benelux companies doing business in China. Is China on its way to becoming the next IP superpower?
More topics will be confirmed soon. Make sure to visit the event’s webpage to stay informed.
