The Benelux Chamber of Commerce - BenCham - is the most active Benelux business platform in China. Its members, leading companies from Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, share an active interest in developing trade and business in China. It is the only Chamber of Commerce that is officially recognised and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of Belgium, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Embassy of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in China.
BenCham has been growing at a steady pace since it was established in 2001. It currently contains 3 chapters; Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou (Pearl River Delta). It is the prime platform for the Benelux business community to get together.
BenCham currently has over 350 members, aspiring to grow further every day. Its base consists of Large Enterprises, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) as well as individuals with an active interest in developing their business in China. As an independent, non-profit organisation, BenCham is managed by a full-time secretariat of both Benelux and Chinese staff. All practises are guided by an active Board of Directors. BenCham sustains itself through government subsidies, membership subscriptions, sponsorships and event fees.
On May 27, 2010, BenCham received the Accreditation Certificate from the BLCCA (Accreditation Programme for Belgian and Belgian-Luxembourg Chambers of Commerce Abroad).
The China-Australia Chamber of Commerce in Beijing (AustCham Beijing) was established in 1996 and has as its goal the advancement of the broader Australia-China business relationship through the effective representation of its 250 members. We achieve this through building connections between our members and broader stakeholders in Australia and China, delivery of effective advocacy programs and provision of information and insights through our business events and online platform.
Core to our ability to deliver on our mission are our member-led industry forums. All of our events have a strong industry focus. We release White Papers and industry specific position papers throughout the year, an important medium for communicating member priorities. The Chamber regularly engages with government and other key stakeholders on issues of concern to members, and actively contributes to the public debate.
Importantly, AustCham Beijing runs unique programs for students of Australian universities and recent graduates which provide opportunities for work experience, mentoring and cultural training. Our members believe in the importance of investing in our future business leaders, and this is a Chamber priority.
AustCham Beijing works closely with its sister Chambers in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Bohai, Chengdu and Hong Kong, under the AustCham Greater China banner.
