German Chamber of Commerce in China

We act as a bridge builder, connecting, translating, representing, giving voice and advocating for German businesses in China. China’s economy is more than four times the size of Germany’s and offers tremendous opportunities to German companies. At the same time, the Chinese market is complex and can be hard to navigate. This is where the German Chamber helps – we offer a powerful platform for networking and exchange between German companies and the local business communities.

How We Support Our Member Companies

Engaging our community with events

We organize over 350 events annually, providing valuable opportunities for members to connect with potential partners and customers. These events include business, networking and social events, seminars, and industry-specific working groups where members can interact with like-minded individuals, gain insights from experts in their field and stay up-to-date on industry developments.

Supporting members with Government Affairs & Advocacy

As a foreign company operating in China, navigating the complex regulatory landscape can be challenging. Our Government Affairs & Advocacy team is committed to helping members navigate these challenges by providing on-the-ground support and exclusive policy briefings. They also represent the interests of members with various stakeholders, including government and public entities.

Sharing insights with our publications

We offer a range of informative publications that provide valuable insights into the business landscape in China. These include the quarterly business journal Ticker, surveys, and reports that capture business sentiment. Members also benefit from exclusive publications such as the full version Labor Market & Salary Report.
