Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe 2014

On 10 - 11. October, the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce will host the sixth Hamburg Summit and call for discussion on Beijing's latest reform. China's Prime Minister is expected to participate as guest of honour.

After Wen Jiabao in 2006, Li will be the second prime minister to honour the Sino-European business summit with his presences. Furthermore, high-level representatives of EU institutions and the federal government will participate as keynote speakers, including, inter alia, Luxembourg’s new head of government Xavier Bettel, EU Trade Commissioner Karel De Gucht, and Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament. The Chinese co-organisers of the event, the industry association CFIE and service federation CATIS, will once again bring to Hamburg two large and high-level business delegations.

A socialist market economy with Chinese characteristics

The sixth “Hamburg Summit” will take place a year after the 330 reforms determined the third plenum of the Communist Party of China, with half of them dedicated to the country’s economic development. By 2020, all reforms should be implemented. Their muzusl goal: a socialist market economy with Chinese characteristics. In addition, he traditionally highly regulated financial sector should be opened to private investors. As Shanghai’s ECPO has shown, environmental protection gained more importance in China. Another subject on the summit’s agenda will be the topic of urbanisation.
