While the Coronavirus is still present in our everyday lives in Belgium, the People’s Republic of China has successfully contained the COVID-19 outbreak. Now that the pandemic is in remission in some countries, China is gradually re-opening its borders. Moreover, research has shown that the consumer market in China shows signs of recovery.
What does this current situation mean for the international business community in China?
