It is crucial for companies to keep up to date with the latest developments in China-related trade and investment issues and to meet with people who are China experts. The most effective way of doing so is by becoming a member of the Belgian-Chinese Economic and Commercial Council (BCECC).
BCECC is the leading Belgian business association for companies engaged in doing business in or with China. It is a non-profit organization established in the 1980s following the beginnings of China’s open-door policy and is located in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
Over the past 25 years the BCECC has focused on organizing China-related events: lunches with high-level Belgian, Chinese or European officials, seminars on topics ranging from investment tools for Belgian companies in China to business opportunities for European companies in China, and meetings with Chinese economic delegations.
The BCECC is also increasingly involved in offering support to Belgian companies, particularly SMEs, interested in attending European-Chinese matchmaking events and trade fairs in China. In addition to the services already mentioned above, the BCECC also helps its members with referrals, business matching and identification of experienced partners in both Belgium and China.
Board of Directors
The Board of Directors of the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce consist of professionals who bring a wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience of Belgium-China relations to the BCECC.
The Board of Directors develops the plans, the policy objectives, and the future strategy of the BCECC and sees that BCECC’s resources are managed efficiently. It aims to improve the relations between Belgium and China on a multitude of levels, and to contribute to the success of the BCECC and its members.
