About Inter-Chamber SME Working Group
The Inter-Chamber Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) Working Group was established in 2014 as a new advocacy element of EU SME Centre Phase II with the objective of strengthening advocacy for EU SMEs. The Inter-Chamber SME Working Group is based on the existing Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) Forum of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, bringing together European SMEs and creating a strong channel to express concerns and report challenges they face in conducting business in China.
