On 27 November 2008, the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Province of East Flanders, organised the workshop “How sourcing in China can help you overcome economic difficulties in 2009”.  The workshop was held at the Provincial House in Ghent and welcomed two speakers: Mr Etienne Charlier, Founder and General Manager of procurAsia and Mr Gert Gijbels, Founder and General Manager of Eunasco.

Mr Charlier explained how sourcing in China could be beneficial for foreign companies during the tough economic climate in 2009. He discussed the changing landscape of the Chinese economy and the opportunities for Belgian companies following these recent changes.

Mr Gijbels further discussed purchasing and supply chain management in Asia. He also emphasised the dos and don’ts regarding sourcing in China. He concluded the workshop by making a short comparison between India and China.
