To mark the visit of the Party Secretary of Weihai and his delegation, the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) organized an information meeting on 24 September in Ghent.


The Party Secretary of Weihai, Mr Sun Shutao, and representatives of the Weihai Investment Bureau gave an outline of the investment environment in Weihai, Shandong province, where several Flemish companies such as Bekaert, Beaulieu and Weihai Golden Solar Thermal Industrials have a major investment. The Party Secretary was accompanied by leading entrepreneurs from Weihai, who wished to get acquainted with our business environment and to find potential partners. In May 2012, the FCCC organized a successful visit with Flemish companies to this dynamic city.


The Vice Governor of the Province of East-Flanders, Mr Marc De Buck, welcomed the Weihai delegation. Mrs Gwenn Sonck, Executive Director FCCC, introduced the assets of Flanders to the delegation.


Weihai City is situated in Shandong province and has seen an impressive economic growth over the past two decades. The city has been listed as one of the most dynamic cities with the fastest economic development in China. Weihai is a well-known port city in China and is therefore a lucrative industrial base with key industries. It has attracted a vast amount of foreign investment to focus on developing the industries of shipbuilding, automobiles and parts, electronics and information, electromechanical equipments and tools, textiles and garments, food and pharmaceuticals.


The meeting was organized with the support of Flanders Investment and Trade. The investment guide can be obtained at the FCCC. Letters of intent for further cooperation between members of the delegation and member companies have also been signed.


The Weihai investment guide can be obtained by sending an e-mail to the FCCC.
