The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, with the support of Flanders Investment and Trade, is organizing a panel discussion on doing business with China, featuring three SMEs who will talk about how they are succeeding in the China market. This event will take place on 26 September 2023 at 18h00 at the Cercle Royal La Concorde, Kouter 150, 9000 Gent. The panel discussion will be followed by an opportunity to meet and talk with the Flemish Trade Commissioners in China.
This event offers an excellent opportunity to learn from the experiences of SME’s on the Chinese market. It is important for our trade commissioners to follow the progress of all Flemish companies doing business in China, so you will have an excellent opportunity to introduce them to your company’s activities in China, or to update them on progress. Should you have any particular issues you wish to raise, the trade commissioners will be happy to assist.
