The promotion of a strong business environment conducive to economic development and innovation has been an important part of the Chinese leadership’s strategy in the past few years. This process has included the development of measures in areas like IP protection, the streamlining of administrative procedures, the support to entrepreneurs and the protection of the rights of small businesses in cases of late payments, among others. With the COVID-19 having upended the global economy and having caused a severe impact of businesses, it is important to understand where China stands in terms of its toolbox to promote a healthy business environment for companies and entrepreneurs.
The EU SME Centre, the European Chamber and the IP SME Helpdesk are thus pleased to invite you to join our next meeting, where SME policy and IP experts will provide an overview of recent SME and IP-related policy developments in China, and their impact on European SMEs doing business in China.
