China has changed rapidly, with the covid restrictions now lifted and business activity resuming in a new environment. During the years of severely limited travel, both customers and competitors have changed. Companies now face a new landscape for both regional supply chains, investments and market opportunities. What do we need to re-think as industrial companies?

We have invited Johan Annell, Partner, Asia Perspective, to a seminar in Gothenburg on March 15 to elaborate on the following questions that foreign manufacturers has been and will be facing in 2023. This seminar is also held in Stockholm on March 23, for more information please click here.

  • What were the learnings and most memorable moments from life during the pandemic period in China?
  • How has the rapid transition in covid-policy affected individuals and businesses?
  • How has the business environment in China changed the past 3 years?
  • How are foreign manufacturers investing in China and what can we expect?
  • What are Chinese companies and entrepreneurs focusing on to compete in China and globally?
  • Where will shifting global value chains and the trends of East Asia regionalization take us?
  • What can we expect from financial investments and M&A activities in industrial companies the year ahead?
