Organised by the Association of Chinese Professionals in Belgium (ACPB).
The Federation of Chinese Professional Associations in Europe (FCPAE) consists of more than 40 Chinese professional associations in over a dozen European countries and encompasses thousands of Chinese professionals actively working in various areas in Europe. As the increasing demand of co-operations between Chinese and European enterprises, FCPAE has founded the annual Europe Forum.
The 3rd FCPAE Europe Forum will be hosted by the Association of Chinese Professionals in Belgium (ACPB) on 14th October, 2011. In the forum, delegates of all associations within the framework of FCPAE as well as officials, scholars, innovative scientists and entrepreneurs across China and the European Union (EU) are invited to discuss the future innovative co-operation between China and the EU in Brussels, the capital of Europe.
As many small and medium size innovative enterprises in Europe and China are actively seeking for commercial partners and potential cooperation, FCPAE will take this opportunity to create a network that combines the intelligence and energy from academia, industries and governments. This will foster in-depth discussions on the hot topics between innovative enterprises in Europe and in China, and allow for the exchange of creative opinions from different viewpoints. By means of various formats of communications, the forum will enable the participants to share in the experiences of innovation and cooperation, to broaden the horizon in multi-cultural cooperation, and to seek opportunities and channels which will benefit everyone involved and create a win-win situation.
FCPAE also aims to present a communication platform for Chinese who are willing to launch their enterprises in Europe and for Europeans who intend to extend their business in China.
