2019 was significantly affected by the US-China trade dispute, by a rising global tendency for rather protectionist economic policy moves paired with a decelerating global economy. Economic slowdown and political uncertainty pay tribute to a mixed year for German companies in China. How do German enterprises rate the business year 2019 and forecast the coming months? What has been achieved with regards to market opening and where do they see deficits? What are the opportunities and what issues challenge German companies operating in China? How does the US-China trade dispute impact business operations and which potential consequences are on the table?


This year more than 520 members across China shared their insights on these questions. Join us for an insightful lunch with our Chamber's Chairs Dr. Stephan Woellenstein and Bettina Schoen-Behanzin, your fellow members as well as high-level multipliers on the occasion of the release of the German Chamber of Commerce's Business Confidence Survey 2019/2020. For the first time, we have been supported by KPMG in Germany in regards to preparing the report. Andreas Glunz, Managing Partner International Business KPMG AG Germany, will present the key findings of this year's report.
