The European Chamber’s Financial Services Working Groups are delighted to invite you to the Joint Working Group Meeting “CF40/CASS Report Presentation on Foreign Perspectives of China’s Financial Opening Up” which is to take place on Tuesday 24th November 2020, 16:00-17:30 pm.

During August, the European Chamber, along with the US-China Business Council and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), participated in an anonymous survey based on an annual research project financed by the influential Chinese think tank CF40 (China Finance 40 Forum) and conducted by CASS (the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences). This year the project was focused on shedding light on the difference in perceptions between China’s regulators and foreign financial institutions when it comes to the opening up, underlining that there is a big gap. On one hand, China’s officials think they make great efforts to push forward the financial opening. On the other hand, foreign financial institutions feel limited improvement and wish the opening could bring more impactful changes.

On this basis, CASS has now published the report at the second Shanghai Bund Summit and are delighted to share the results with members of the European Chamber’s Financial Services Working Groups. At this meeting, Mr. Qiyuan Xu, Senior fellow, Head of Economic Development Department and Deputy Director of RCIF (Research Center of International Finance) at CASS will present the report.

We are delighted to invite you to attend our upcoming joint working group meeting on the safety of dangerous goods transport by road on 24th November, 14:00 – 17:30.

China’s transport ministry – along with five other ministries – published measures governing the safe transport of dangerous goods by road, which came into force on 1 January 2020. Currently, the transport of some disinfectants, perfumes and other small products containing chemicals, such as aerosols and chemical reagents, must be transported by specialist vehicles designed to move dangerous goods. The new measures, however, allow an exemption for small quantities of dangerous goods that meet certain requirements.

The European Chamber is honored to welcome Mr. Wu Jinzhong, Head of the expert group on road transport of dangerous goods, Ministry of transport, as well as industry professionals Ms. Jingzu Li, Project Director of Improve the Safety of Dangerous Goods Transportation in China of Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and Mr. Chenfeng Shen, General Manager of GBK China Co.

After 12 years’ waiting, the 4th version of the Patent Law with an aim of further motivating innovations and improving the mechanism for cracking down patent infringements was finally passed on October 17, 2020. The amended Chinese patent law will take effect on June 1, 2021. Second Amendments introduced pharmaceutical patent-term extensions and established an early pharmaceutical patent-dispute resolution mechanism and patent linkage system that further protects the rights of patentees.
