Europe-China Forum


Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of China’s opening up, the 8th edition of the Europe-China Forum will be held on November 28, 2018 in Brussels under the theme of “Cooperation, competition and the search for common ground”.

The Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) and Friends of Europe are pleased to invite you to this year’s Europe-China Forum during which participants and high-level European and Chinese speakers will look at Europe-China relations in the context of the myriad opportunities and challenges to come – opportunities to move ever closer in their cooperation on issues like the energy transition and more inclusive connectivity projects, as well as ways to overcome challenges posed by trade and investment. As they seek to reach common ground, leaders of both have tough questions to answer:

• After 40 years of reform, are China’s markets an open or shut case for European exporters?
• Can there be real synergies between the BRI and the EU’s connectivity blueprint?
• What can China and Europe do jointly to encourage the development of green tech and clean energy?
