The EU-China Business Association and the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China are pleased to invite you to a webinar focused on European Business in China: Position Paper 2023/2024. This webinar will take place on 15 December 2023 at 10 am CET.

On 20th September, the European Chamber published its European Business in China: Position Paper 2023/2024. This year's Executive Position Paper outlines how China's post-COVID-19 recovery has faltered and what Chinese policymakers can do to address this.

China's decision to reopen its borders on 8th January 2023 was a welcome surprise and many believed that a swift economic rebound would follow. The political will in China also seemed to finally match businesses' expectations for increased opening of the economy. However, as the year has progressed, many areas of China's economy failed to perform as hoped.

Although official announcements aimed at improving the business environment have been released, so has a slew of national security-focused legislation, which has deepened uncertainty and raised compliance risks. This has sent mixed messages to the business community, leaving many companies questioning what kind of relationship China wants to have with them.

The Position Paper 2023/2024 details the challenges faced by European companies operating in China and provides more than 1,000 constructive recommendations to the Chinese Government on how they can be resolved. It provides a blueprint for attracting and retaining foreign investment in China, while also addressing many of the structural issues that are hindering the country's economic development.
