Advocacy

The EU SME Centre Advocacy Platform provides a coherent, consistent and consolidated voice for European small businesses.

Inter-Chamber SME Working Group

The Inter-Chamber Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Working Group´╝łInter-Chamber SME WG) was established in 2014 as a new advocacy element of the EU SME Centre with the objective of ensuring that the voice of European SMEs in China is heard. The Working Group is based on the European Chamber’s Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Forum. It brings together European SMEs to create a strong channel where concerns over the business challenges faced in China can be expressed. The Working Group’s recommendations represent the concerns and interests of SMEs from all EU Member States. 

The Inter-Chamber SME WG organises a series of regular working group meetings and policy meetings and that are intended to provide practical solutions and policy advice to European SMEs and European SME stakeholders.

Join the European SME business community in China and get up-to-date presentations on the regulatory, economic and social changes happening in China that have the direct impact on SMEs exporting and investing in the market. Listen to common issues faced in the market and contribute your experiences to help lobby European and Chinese policymakers.
