Please find herewith an update on the creation of the European Commission-funded EU SME Centre in Beijing which might be of interest to you. The EU SME Centre assists European Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to export to and/or invest in China by providing a comprehensive range of free-of-charge, hands-on support services including the provision of information, confidential advice, networking events and training.
The Centre is funded by the European Union and also acts as a platform facilitating coordination amongst Member State and European public and private sector service providers to SMEs.
The Centre is now fully operational –on its website www.eusmecentre.org.cn you already find the first dozen of documents –sector studies (ICT, food and beverage …), certification guidelines, case studies of successful companies, etc. – which you and your member companies can download and use for free. Of course, SMEs can also send enquiries directly to the Centre via email or the website in case they require more specific information on the Chinese market, want to use their office space or meeting rooms, etc.
