Words from our Chairman

Dear Chamber friends,

There are numerous obstacles that you face when running a business in China, which are often unpredictable. With a lot of experience, a high degree of competence, and a strong member platform, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China represents an influential and strong united voice. We use this voice to continuously work for simplified and more transparent rules and conditions for Swedish companies in China. Sometimes the solutions are found in China, sometimes in Swedish or Europe. Sometimes the obstacles can be removed quickly, sometimes it takes long-term persistent lobbying to make process. To get the best results, we have continuous collaborations with other well established players, such as the Swedish Embassy, Business Sweden, and the European Chamber of Commerce in China.

It is important for us to have a continuous dialogue with our member, in order to evolve and create an ever more relevant role in the future.

LARS-ÅKE SEVERIN
