On 22 September 2009, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC), with the support of the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC), organized a presentation of its Position paper. 

EU Trade Commissioner Catherine Ashton met with the representatives of European business to discuss challenges and opportunities of doing business in China. The President of the European Chamber of Commerce in China, Jörg Wuttke, was in Brussels to present the new European Chamber Position Paper, an annual report on the issues faced by European businesses investing in and trading with China. Philippe de Buck, Director General of Business Europe, also spoke on behalf of European companies. Commissioner Ashton welcomed the Position Paper, and gave some impressions of her recent trip to China during an interactive session with representatives of the European Chamber and Business Europe. 

Commenting on the meeting and the Position Paper, Commissioner Ashton said: "I welcome the important work of the European Chamber of Commerce in China. Their constructive approach is the right one to create new opportunities for trade and investment that will help us recover from the economic crisis."
