The EU SME Centre and BenCham invite you to join our seminar on 11 May, focusing on Chinese National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ).

The Chinese National Equities Exchange and Quotations (NEEQ), the so-called New Third Board, has attracted great attention from Chinese SMEs. A quotation on the NEEQ not only offers SMEs an alternative way to finance, but for Foreign SMEs also a way to more transparent Chinese business partners with huge growth potential.
