Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC)

Where to start and how to be successful on the Chinese market?


After the United States and the United Kingdom, China is Europe’s third-largest trading partner outside the EU. Last year, no less than 223 billion euros worth of goods were exported. In other words, the growth opportunities for your exports in China are huge. These are strong arguments for putting China center stage during Voka’s International Business Week.

The Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) is therefore happy to support Voka Antwerpen-Waasland and Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT)’s seminar “Where to start and how to be successful on the Chinese market?” on November 25, 2022. Exchange ideas with various speakers and entrepreneurs and learn how to establish and develop business contacts in China!
