The Brussels launch of the
'European Business in China Position Paper 2011/2012'

Tuesday 20th September 2011, 11h30 - 13h30, Brussels


  • Karel De Gucht, Commissioner for Trade, European Commission
  • Davide Cucino, President, European Union Chamber of Commerce in China

We are pleased to invite you to the annual lunch seminar "EU Business in China: 2011/2012", which will take place on Tuesday 20 September 2011 at 11h30 at Martin's Central Park Hotel, Boulevard Charlemagne 80, 1000 Brussels .

The seminar is organised by the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) in collaboration with Business Europe and the EU-China Business Association (EUCBA), of which the FCCC is in charge of the secretariat-general. At this occasion, the EUCCC will present its European Business in China Position Paper 2011/2012.

This is the 12th edition of this annual publication which has grown in importance and stature to become a vital contribution from private business to the development of China and Europe-China relations.

In this past year, despite some progress, many issues remain unresolved and additional concerns have arisen. The many examples in this publication illustrate the perception of European business that it is becoming increasingly challenging to operate in the Chinese market. Drawing on the industry knowledge and expertise of the European Chamber's 1,600 member companies, this year's Position Paper presents Chinese and European policy-makers with more than 600 key recommendations.

At this event we will also have the honour of Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht joining to deliver a speech on the current climate of EU-China business and economic relations.
