Event Write-Up: Breakfast Event in Hong Kong: European Chamber South China Position Paper and Business Confidence Survey Launch 2015/2016, 8 Sept 2015

The European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China hosted a breakfast seminar about European Business in China – South China Position Paper 2015/2016 on Tuesday, 8th Sept 2015, 8:00am-10:00am at 27/F, Club Lusitano. This was the second event the two chambers co-organized together.

The event was well-attended by over 60 guests from both Hong Kong and China, which included Consul-general, professionals/activists from the business sector, media and members of the European National Chambers of Commerce in Hong Kong as well as those from the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China. We were glad to have TÜV Rheinland as our platinum sponsor for the event.

The roundtable breakfast was inaugurated with opening remarks by Ms. Francine Hadjisotiriou, General Manager, European Chamber, South China Chapter, who warmly welcomed the guest speakers and participants.

Then Mr. Alberto Vettoretti, Chairman, South China Board, European Chamber; Managing Partner, Dezan Shira & Associates, gave an overview of Guangdong’s Economy, the 2015 Business Confidence Survey findings and recommendations.

Mr. Alberto Vettoretti expressed in the presentation that Guangdong as the “China’s economic powerhouse, manufacturing engine, one of the largest importers and exporters of goods in China, and the testing ground for the Central Government”, it is important to develop the region. South China is equipped for success due to “Guangdong’s strategic location with proximity to Hong Kong and Asia, and it is the most dynamic city-clusters in China/World and Business environment, as well as home to the Guangdong Free Trade Zone (Nansha, Qianhai-Shekou and Hengqin)”. Nevertheless the region still faces a lot challenges. According to the South China Position Paper 2015/2016, Guangdong and the South China region as a whole need to improve upon the ‘three flows’: the flow of people, goods and services, and information.

The presentation was followed by a lively discussion and Q and A section with panelists: Mr. Vivian Desmonts, Vice Chair, South China Board, European Chamber; Partner, DS Avocats, Mr. Donato Vairo, Chair, Manufacturing Forum, European Chamber, South China Chapter; General Manager, Metasystem Electronics and Ms. Christine Raynaud, CEO, MRIC. The panel discussion was moderated by Mr. Alberto Vettoretti. The audience actively raised questions and expressed their views.

The event was concluded with closing remarks by Mr. Daniel de Blocq van Scheltinga, Executive Committee member, European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.

This event was a great success which marked a good start of the collaboration between the chambers in Hong Kong and China, in particular the South China region. We look forward to closer cooperation between the two chambers in the coming year to have more information exchanges between the two regions.
