Interview with Director Sun Bin, Guangdong Board of Investment Promotion, Department of Commerce in Guangdong province. 孙斌, 广东省商务厅投资促进局局长
What’s your favorite, best memory of the European Chamber? 在与中国欧盟商会的合作中，您印象最深的是？
The European Chamber is our important partner. What impresses us most is that since 2017, the Guangdong Provincial Department of Commerce and the European Chamber have jointly organised the China (Guangdong)-Europe Investment and Innovation Cooperation Conference for three consecutive years, which played an important role in inviting European business and organising activities. During this period, we also witnessed the continuous improvement of the European Chamber, increase of its member enterprises and expansion of its influence.
What role do you expect the European Chamber to take in the next 20 years? 您期望商会在未来的20年将起到怎样的作用或者扮演什么角色？
Firstly, I hope that the Chamber will become a ‘bridge’ for European enterprises to contact government agencies and carry out communication and coordination with government departments at all levels. Secondly, to become the ‘link’ between and strengthen the understanding and cooperation between EU enterprises. Thirdly, to become a ‘window’ for information transmission—introducing Guangdong’s investment environment, various policies and achievements in economic construction to European enterprises promptly—and playing an active role in the international economic cooperation between the European Union and Guangdong, and even China.
Sun Bin, Guangdong Board of Investment Promotion, Department of Commerce in Guangdong province.
