The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China in partnership with MERICS have recently published a joint report on the current and potential costs of decoupling. SwissCham Beijing, in partnership with CCI FRANCE CHINE and Benelux Chamber, is delighted to invite you to a session to deep dive on this topic and explore the challenges that it presents.
The report "Decoupling: Severed Ties and Patchwork Globalisation" covers four main themes of decoupling, broken down across nine sections: macro (political and financial); trade (supply chains and critical inputs); innovation (standards and R&D); and data and networks (data, network equipment and telecommunications services).
All these pose significant risks. From China's vow to become self-reliant in strategic, high-technology sectors, to US-China trade and tech war, the business environment already evolved in a way that impacted European companies operating in China. During this session, we will approach the ongoing trends, how they may evolve and how businesses can prepare , as well as aspects European businesses could turn to their advantage.
