About the Business Support Partner
The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) was founded in 2000 by 51 member companies that shared a goal of establishing a common voice for the various business sectors of the European Union and European businesses operating in China. The EUCCC is a members-driven, non-profit, fee-based organisation with a core structure of 43 Working Groups and Fora representing European business in China.
The EUCCC now boasts more than 1,600 members in 7 chapters operating in 9 cities: Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Shenyang, South China (Guangzhou and Shenzhen), Southwest China (Chengdu, Chongqing) and Tianjin. Each chapter is managed at the local level by local boards reporting directly to the Executive Committee.
The EUCCC is recognized by the European Commission and the Chinese Authorities as the official voice of European business in China. It is also recognized as a Foreign Chamber of Commerce with the Ministry of Commerce and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade.
