Head of Communication and Media Relationship

In the digital sector, opportunities of cooperation and synergies between Europe and China are tremendous.
The non-profit association ChinaEU was set up two years ago, with the following objectives:
  • Promoting business cooperation: for example, together with the Internet Society of China (ISC), ChinaEU organized the first China-EU Digital Cooperation Roundtable, hosted by the CEO of Proximus, bringing over 50 representatives of leading Chinese and European ICT and banking companies, providing an important platform for business exchanges. The Chairman of ChinaEU is, besides the Chairman of Nokia, the only representative of the EU industry in the board of the Wuzhen World Internet Conference, which is chaired by Jack Ma.
  • Boosting EU-China business partnerships: for example, ChinaEU hosted Tencent and Alibaba to show how e-commerce platforms can greatly boost European companies’ export opportunities to China; similarly, ChinaEU signed an agreement with China Information Technology Industry Federation (CITIF) to exclusively represent China’s ICT industry in Brussels and to facilitate business partnerships between Chinese and European businesses across the two regions.
  • Promoting Chinese investments in Europe: for example, ChinaEU brought together more than 30 EU Regions and Cities to present a number of projects to the largest Chinese banks (ICBC, China Construction Bank, Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China) and HSBC in the presence of Markku Markkula, President of the Committee of the Regions, and Yang Yanyi, Chinese Ambassador to the EU.
  • Keeping Europe up to date on Chinese developments and vice-versa: for example, ChinaEU brings top Chinese representatives to events like the Digital Regulation Forum in London and hosts panel discussions on the EU’s Internet and telecom market, 5G and E-commerce in major Chinese events, like the Bo’ao Forum for Asia.
  • Advocacy for better coordinated regulatory environments in the EU and China: for example, ChinaEU offered to senior representatives from the Chinese ICT and banking ecosystem the opportunity to share their views to EU Commission and Parliament on EU digital policies.
