EURObiz - May/ June 2016

Published: June 2016

As China gears up its economy to be more consumption driven, European companies will need to continually refine their understanding of consumer behaviour and, perhaps most importantly, regulatory requirements in China. Two recent legal developments—the new Food Safety Law and the 2013 Consumer Law—will both have a strong bearing in this respect. With the former including stronger rights for consumers, and the latter beefing up standards for inspection and monitoring of food products, it is hoped that the impact of both will be positive.

The Chinese Government understands that in order to ensure continued economic growth and raise living standards its economy must ascend the value chain, so it came as no surprise when the State Council announced the Made in China 2025 (MiC2025) initiative during the first half of 2015. As part of a larger, three-step plan that will run until 2049, the initiative aims to expand the manufacturing sector’s capacity to innovate, fully integrate IT into industrial processes, build quality brands and strengthen links with the international advanced manufacturing industry. This issue of EURObiz explores the initiative in detail and identifies potential opportunities for EU companies operating in China.

China’s environmental issues have been well documented over recent years, particularly with regard to its air quality issues. China’s commitment during the COP21 in Paris last year, to peak CO2 emissions by around 2030, therefore came as a breath of fresh air. Positive rhetoric aside, though, China’s leaders now have to bring local government and entrenched SOEs into line to ensure that they make good on their promises. EU businesses stand ready to assist in this goal, and saw the Paris Agreement as a clear signal to scale up innovation and investment in climate solutions.
