BritCham’s British Business in China: Position Paper 2020

On the 9th June, the British chambers of commerce in China launched the British Business in China: Position Paper 2020.  

The paper is BritCham’s flagship publication, where members across a range of sectors in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and Southwest China come together to raise the regulatory barriers that they face, areas of opportunity for bilateral cooperation and recommendations for business environment reform.

On the basis of these consultations, the Chamber called for the following in 2020:

  1. Strengthening of the implementation of market reforms at all levels
  2. Addressing longstanding and continuing concerns around cybersecurity and IT restrictions
  3. Promote greater liberalisation of the capital account
  4. Reduce the direct presence of state-owned enterprises in the market
  5. Keep conversations on bilateral trade frequent and open
  6. Establishment of travel agreements to facilitate the return of British nationals

The report itself includes more detailed  recommendations for businesses in aggregate and on sector-specific challenges and opportunities.
