The European Business in China – Position Paper (Position Paper) is the European Chamber’s primary annual publication. The 16th edition of the Position Paper offers Chinese policy-makers almost  900 recommendations that draw directly from the knowledge and expertise of the European Chamber’s more than 1,600 member companies.


This year’s Position Paper includes:
· A review of the 13th Five-year Plan: a thorough analysis of the importance of the plan to European business’ position in the Chinese market.
· A ‘dusting off’ of the Third Plenum’s Decision’s reforms and evaluation of how their implementation—or the lack thereof—has continued to affect the Chinese business environment during the last 12 months.
· A review of the lack of reciprocity in bilateral investment relations. While Chinese investment in Europe has continued to grow rapidly, European business continues to face a wide range of restrictions on how it can contribute to the next stage of China’s economic development.
· The concerns of the European Chamber’s 25 workings groups about their respective sector’s operating environment.”
