The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China’s recent “2021 Business Confidence Survey” has shown that 60% of the European companies surveyed plan to expand their business in China in 2021. This marks an increase of almost 10% from last year.

73% of companies said that they achieved profitability last year, while half saw their profit margin in China exceed their global average. The report also highlighted that a quarter of the businesses surveyed are strengthening their supply chain construction in China. Over two-thirds (68%) expressed optimism about the business prospects of their industries in the next two years.
