Last year the Chinese economy expanded by 7.7%, a rate of growth largely seen as a continued ‘slowdown’. How did your company perform by comparison? The results of the 2013 Sino-Belgian Business Survey set the performance of Belgian companies in the right context. When we talk about the growth of Belgian businesses in China are we comparing apples and pears? Equally importantly, how do Belgian businesses feel about the future of their business in China? Moore Stephens Verschelden, together with the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT) and the Benelux Chamber of Commerce organized a discussion on the results of this year’s survey with a panel of leading business figures and independent experts on 24 April 2013, 17h at KBC Bank in Brussels.


Following an introduction by Mr Philippe Snel, Chairman Bencham Shanghai, a panel discussion was held, moderated by Mr Andries Verschelden, Partner Moore Stephens Verschelden. The panelists included Mr Tim Van den Bossche, Vice President Global Marketing & Strategy, Agfa Graphics; Mr Filip Goris, Regional Manager China & India, Recticel; Mr Wim Buyens, Senior Vice President Projection Division, Barco; and Mr Thomas Baert, Owner & CEO, Chinafloors. A Q&A session and networking reception concluded the event.
