Seminar with Sparkasse International – China’s Corporate Social Credit System

December 4, 2019 / 9:35 am - 5:35 pm UTC+1


China’s Corporate Social Credit System

Challenges and opportunities for German companies

So far, the focus of Western media has mostly focused on the potential impacts of the new Social Credit System in China on private individuals. However, until the recent published study by the European Chamber of Commerce, only a few knew about the Social Credit System (SCS) for companies. The SCS for companies is not a new development. Since 2014, it has been gradually introduced by the Chinese government authorities. But how is the system implemented for companies? What data will be collected and how will it be used? Will the system, which applies to all companies in China, finally create a level playing field for foreign companies in China? Red and black lists, point systems – carrot or stick for my business activity? What needs to be done now and how can I ensure a positive assessment in the future?

In order for you to successfully shape your current or planned future business in China, we, together with Sparkasse International Westfalen, would like to invite you to one of two half-day free seminar!

In Mr. Schuster’s lecture, he will shed light on the trade conflict between China and the USA and their struggle for supremacy in the world. In addition, he points out interesting countries which profit from the relocation of trade routes in connection with the “New Silk Road Project” and thus are or can become potential sales markets for German products.

The ECOVIS Group provides legal and tax advice in over 75 countries worldwide, including three locations in China.
