China Committee


The China Committee aims to inform Dutch Chamber members about the latest developments in Mainland China in the economic, social, environmental and political field.


The flagship event of the China Committee is the annual China Seminar, which has been organized for the past 24 years subsequently. This is one of the Dutch Chamber's largest events, which looks at future trends in China and covers interesting topics in depth, with a variety of specialised guest speakers.

Topics of the last China seminars were:

  • China’s Outbound Investments (2012)
  • Who will feed China? On China’s food & water shortages (2013)
  • China on a Tightrope, Reform or Revolution? On the Third Plenum (2014)
  • Invented in China, Development of an Entrepreneurial China (2015)
  • Chasing the Chinese Consumer (2016)
  • China: a continent in itself (2017)
