This is the first time that the Beijing Position Paper is brought out as a standalone publication. It compiles the latest assessments and concerns of European businesses operating in Beijing with the aim to offer constructive recommendations to the city’s policy makers.
Beijing’s stipulated goals are to be or become a centre of government, culture, international exchanges and technology – its four ‘core functions’. Yet Beijing is even more than this: a global city like no other, and one of China’s most important commercial centres. However, several issues are holding Beijing back from fulfilling its potential. The Beijing Position Paper aims to address them.
- An overview of the perceptions of European businesses operating in Beijing.
- An in-depth analysis of Beijing’s economic, commercial and technological development and potential;
- Recommendations on how Beijing can further facilitate for foreign investment in the city;
- Analysis of Beijing’s continued urbanisation drive and its increasing integration with the provinces of Tianjin and Hebei.
