The Business Climate Survey for Swedish companies in China is an annual survey carried out by Team Sweden in China since 2001. The survey is based on responses from almost 100 companies across sectors, and analyses the performance, climate and future outlook for Swedish companies operating in China.

General Consul of Sweden Marie-Claire Swärd-Capra will be giving welcoming remarks.

The results of the survey will be presented by Daniela Ling-Vannerus Cassmer, General Manager at the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China, and Per Portén, Head of Shanghai office at Business Sweden.

Some highlights from the report which will be elaborated on during the presentation:

  • The impact of Covid-19 on business results in 2020
  • The ongoing US-China trade conflict and its implications for Swedish firms
  • Challenges currently impacting Swedish companies in China
  • How Swedish firms perceive the Chinese environment from a sustainable business perspective
  • Which investment plans Swedish firms are having in China, in the light of the current global economic turmoil

The presentation will be held at Fairmont Peace Hotel, Breakfast will be served.

This is a members-only event.

Launched for the first time in 2001 by the Chamber of Commerce, the Business Climate Survey has since grown into an integrated Team Sweden initiative, conducted among Swedish company representatives in China. It aims to gauge the business sentiment as well as challenges and opportunities in the country and, as such, plays an important informative role in Team Sweden's work supporting Swedish businesses in China.
