And break the clichés of development zones

Join the round table discussion (free of charge) with EU Sino, co-organised with BenCham, the EU SME Centre and ICI – Beijing B&R. The panel will consist of 10 to 12 specialists with mixed background.

1. “Breaking the clichés of development zones”

There seems to be an abundance of Development Zones, and the public can’t distinguish anymore which ones are successful, what are all the empty promises written in their similar brochures, etc… After a brief look at the history, and explaining the current central government policies and regulations, there will be an open discussion about the use, advantages, different types, etc.

2. “How enterprises choose a location”

It struck us to learn that most of the companies we have been talking to in 2017 did not have a clear process of how to select a location for their (new) businesses, nevertheless it is always extremely important. Recent studies mention as top criteria: vicinity of enough skilled labour, clients and/or suppliers. But what else matters? At what price?
