The European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (ECC) would like to cordially invite to the Launch of the European Union Business Information Programme (EUBIP) Position Papers. The general objective is to strengthen economic partnership and business cooperation with Hong Kong and Macao and ensure a stronger and coordinated representation of European business and its interests in Hong Kong and Macao, as many European companies use Hong Kong as their China hub or gateway.

This event will formally launch FIVE Position Papers where each one has been drafted by a different Business Council of the ECC. Each Business Council will present approximately 5-10 minutes on their Position Paper. The presentation will be followed by a brief Question and Answer Session.

Mr. Horst Geicke, Chairman of the European Chamber of Commerce and Mr. Philippe Duponteil, Head of Unit, Far East, Directorate-General for Trade of the European Commission will provide the opening remarks.
