Circular economy is a booming topic in both Belgium in China, as the world’s awareness of a shift to a more sustainable way of living has increased in the past few years. Resources are valuable and we need to find solutions on how to protect the resources and make the most of it for both the planet and the economy. Circular economy has taken an important place in China’s agenda, as the Chinese Government even has a circular economy strategy featured in their latest five-year plan.
How can companies reuse, remanufacture and recycle the used materials? How can we efficiently manage waste and resources? What has been done and what is being done?
In order to find an answer to these questions and exchange about the topic, The Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) and the province of West-Vlaanderen are pleased to invite you to a business seminar on “Circular economy in China: from theory to action” on May 29, 2018 in Bruges.
