Princely mission to China 16 to 22 November 2019 - Beijing and Shanghai


  1. China is one of the largest economies in the world and the second-largest importer. It is also one of the biggest countries with an enormous consumer market: the number of people in China's middle class is increasing yearly. It is Flanders' 10th export destination and the third outside Europe. 

    China's economic development involves technical-scientific progress and innovations. At the same time, China faces big challenges in the fields of environment, energy, transport, health and foodstuffs.


    Discover this exiting market during an economic mission from 16 to 22 November 2019, headed by HRH Princess Astrid.


    On the program:

    • Beijing: the political center of China and Shanghai, China's commercial heart.

    • As an option, Flanders Investment & Trade is offering a third destination: a program in Guangzhou or Hong Kong.

    • During this multi-sectoral mission, Flanders will focus on cleantech, life sciences and sports & entertainment technology.

    • Other key sectors which will be covered include:

      diamonds, agro-food, smart economy, artificial intelligence, robotics, space, transport and logistics, e-commerce, architecture, sustainability and tourism.

    What to expect:

    • Establish useful high-level contacts in one week.

    • FIT will prepare a tailor-made program in Beijing, Shanghai and optionally in Guangzhou or Hong Kong, irrespective of the sector in which you are active.

    • During seminars, visits and numerous networking moments, you will acquire a lot of information from your colleagues-entrepreneurs.


    Registration is open till 19 August 2019.


    Organization: Flanders Investment & Trade in cooperation with the Agency for Foreign Trade, AWEX and hub Brussels Invest & Export.
