China will introduce new reforms and further improve its business environment for foreign enterprises. The Commerce Ministry says it will release details after discussions with business leaders from the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan and South Korea on Sept 17.
Company chiefs from six leading companies joined the discussion, including the US-based Emerson Electric and the consulting firm the Cohen Group. The Commerce Ministry says the meeting aims to help global businesses counter the effect of China-US trade tensions. The German-based tech giant SAP, UK-based HSBC, Japan’s Toyota and South Korea’s Samsung are also involved in the dialogue.
“This meeting is intended to enhance our mutual understanding through communication. We would like to hear what suggestions for cooperation you have for the Chinese government. The ultimate goal is to help global companies like you to grow better and faster in the Chinese market,” said Commerce Minister Zhong Shan.
