Letter from Nanjing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau
We are glad to hear that this year marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (European Chamber). On this occasion, the Nanjing Human Resources and Social Security Bureau would like to extend warm congratulations and sincere wishes to our friends at the European Chamber and celebrate this anniversary with you.
The European Chamber aims to provide a common voice for European companies from various industries operating in various regions of China. After 20 years, the European Chamber now has more than 1,600 member companies and is active in nine cities and regions, namely, Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing, the Pearl River Delta (Guangzhou and Shenzhen), Shanghai, Shenyang and Tianjin. The work of the European Chamber is highly recognised by the European Commission and the Chinese Government, and the Chamber is widely reputed as a trustworthy European organisation in China.
In recent years, the Nanjing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau has actively participated in government exchanges and symposiums hosted by the European Chamber Nanjing Branch. These forums provide an optimised business environment for the development and operation of European companies in Nanjing by establishing a long-term information communication and sharing platform. Serving as a bridge between the government and European firms, the Nanjing Chapter has submitted the Nanjing Position Paper to our office twice, in 2017 and 2019, providing valuable suggestions on Nanjing’s policies on attracting talent, internships for foreign talent and residence permits, to name but a few.
On 29th June, the President of the European Chamber Jörg Wuttke said in an interview with Xinhua: “In a changing world, Europe and China should further explore the great potential of their bilateral economic and trade relations, bring tangible benefits to both sides, and motivate the world for economic recovery.”
We sincerely hope that, in the future, we will continue to maintain good communications with each other. Having the European Chamber as a bridge, we will promote in-depth cooperation between Chinese and European companies in all aspects, make suggestions for the development of cities, increase the openness of the market, and create a fair business environment to achieve mutual success.
Finally, I sincerely congratulate the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China on the 20th anniversary of its establishment. We will continue our journey and sail to victory together.
