Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham,
SwissCham is delighted to invite you to the upcoming Stars webinar part of the webinar series: Staying in Dialogue with China. The webinar will be held online on Friday, September 30th. For this occasion, Stars has invited Mr. Joerg Wuttke to share his observations on the topic: "Foreign Business in China - Today and Tomorrow". This webinar has been supported and co-branded in cooperation with French Chamber (CCI France Chine), European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC), British Chamber of Commerce and Italian Chamber of Commerce as well with Caixin Global as media partner and the China Macro Group as knowledge partner.
In our seventh and last conversation of this series, stars Switzerland Alumni Chapter President and stars Foundation Board Member Markus HERRMANN, Co-Founder and Managing Director at China Macro Group (CMG), will be talking to Joerg WUTTKE, President, European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC); Member, stars International Board, Beijing.
The year 2022 presents numerous challenges to foreign business in China: among them, a generally sluggish economy, Covid-induced disruptions of production and supply chains, further politicization of the business environment especially amid China's role in the Ukraine war, further grown concerns about potential escalations in the Taiwan Strait as well as a rising number of European expats leaving the country. Almost four in five European companies – as surveyed by the EUCCC's Business Confidence Survey in late spring 2022 – found China had lost attractiveness for investments; at the same time, eight times as many firms are reported to have plans for more onshoring than those planning to offshore. So, how is the business environment perceived by European business? Do businesses indeed rather strengthen their local presence instead of leaving? And how do they balance mitigation for short-term political and economic volatilities with longer-term considerations for domestic and global competitiveness?
Join us to find out more.
Kindly note: This webinar is held under Chatham House Rules and will not be recorded. We are looking forward to welcoming you to this interesting seminar.
