Interview with Harald Kumpfert, CEO at NECreat China, Chair of Shenyang Chapter, European Chamber
During the twenty years of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China’s existence, it has played a positive and proactive role during China’s transformation into an economic powerhouse. As a critical voice, the European Chamber was a vital player in influencing the regulatory framework and policy implementation that shaped this economic landscape, and therefore became a respected counterpart for the central and local governments. This fact also made the European Chamber invaluable for our members and is one of the main reasons for our successful development.
I feel privileged leading the Shenyang Chapter during the challenging transformation of Northeast China from the epicentre of China’s heavy industry, dominated by state-owned enterprises, into a versatile and diversified economic engine governed by transparent market-based principles leading to an ecological and sustainable future.
During these testing times, further amplified by the current pandemic, our Shenyang Chapter will continue to act as a solid bridge between the European business community, the local governments and society in order to unlock the vast potential of this region, thereby creating numerous opportunities for our members.
