BenCham, in cooperation with MS Advisory, and the EU-SME Centre have the pleasure to invite you to our 2019 Sino Benelux Business Survey Launch on June 3 at the Luxembourg Embassy in Beijing.
Though the Chinese economy has been experiencing pressure from developments such as the China-US Trade War and slowing economic growth, the Chinese GDP according to statistics from Reuters grew with 6.6% in 2018 – which is still a solid growth rate as compared to many other developing and developed economies around the world.
Both 2018 and early 2019 have shown many new reforms to be introduced, which includes the Individual Income Tax (IIT) Reform, new Negative List, Foreign Investment Law (to be implemented in 2020) and reductions in VAT and Corporate Income Tax rates. These have been implemented in a bid to further stabilize the economy and stimulate economic activity for 2019.
How have Benelux companies performed in light of all of this? What are the developments that impact companies the most? What opportunities could arise in the near future?
First Mr. Raoul Schweicher, Managing Director of our partner MS Advisory, will present the audience the results for this year's Sino-Benelux Business Survey. This year's survey has gauged how Benelux companies have performed in the past year, how different policies have impacted them, and how they look at the future.
Subsequently, Mr. Bojan Pavlek, representative of the Directorate General GROW at the EU delegation, will give a presentation. Mr. Pavlek will comment on the results of the survey, and give us his views on the current business climate in China, from the perspective of European SME's.
Lunch will be provided during the event.
