Since China ended its 'zero-COVID' strategy in late 2022, Chinese officials have been striving to restore the country's appeal as an investment destination. However, the results of the China Business Confidence Survey (BCS) 2023, conducted by The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China in partnership with Roland Berger, indicate that this will not be an easy task. The annual survey reveals that there has been a significant deterioration of business sentiment in the last three years that cannot be reversed overnight.
In this hybrid seminar, esteemed speakers Mr. Laurent Doucet, Mr. Claus Schuermann and Mr. Klaus Zenkel will present the key results of the survey and shed light on the evolution of challenges as well as risks and opportunities around the following topics:
Chinese Business Environment
China's Supply Chain
Politicisation of Business in China
Decarbonisation in achieving China's 30/60 goals
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and sundowner networking drinks.
