Event Description:

To develop their market, an increasing number of European SMEs are exporting their ideas and efforts to other countries, especially to China. In 2013 a new investment surge from the EU to China is being ridden by industry leading small and medium-sized enterprises. However, issues like access to finance and IPR protection continue to challenge both new comers and those already established in China.  


To address these concerns, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, the China IPR SME Helpdesk and the EU SME Centre are organising the third EU SME Forum on Friday 13 September 2013 at the Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel.


European SMEs will enjoy free attendance upon written approval after their registration on the European Chamber's website.
