Join us on October 23rd where the Danish Chamber of Commerce – Beijing, ThinkChina and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China invites you to a panel discussion unravelling the mysteries within the corporate social credit system.

China's social credit system… Much has been said, and much has been criticized about this, to many, dystopian scenario of individuals being rated based on their everyday life activities. But the credit system will not just affect the citizens, also companies located in China, domestic and foreign, will receive a credit rating under the corporate social credit system.

The topic has been highlighted recently by the EU Chamber of Commerce's report on China's corporate social credit system called 'The Digital Hand: How China's Corporate Social Credit System Conditions Market Actors', in which they emphasize that European companies needs to ramp up their preparations for the intensification of the system. Adam Dunnet from EUCCC will do a preliminary briefing on their findings. He will afterwards sit down with Casper Wichmann from Danish thinktank ThinkChina, and Liam Jiazi from EU SME Center to discuss the potential complications the system can cause foreign companies in China, what immediate actions needs to be taken, and how the future environment looks like for foreign business' in China.
