The "Hamburg Summit: China meets Europe"
A powerful platform where China meets Europe

The preliminary date of the next "Hamburg Summit" is November 26 and November 27, 2018.  The final date may vary and is subject to the availability of the Chinese guest of honour.

The “Hamburg Summit” was initiated and organised by the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and took place for the first time in 2004. The conference is a platform for an open dialogue between Europe and China aiming to improve the economic relations and the understanding of each other. Since its implementation, the “Hamburg Summit“ has served as a prominent platform to discuss the main trends and questions regarding Sino-European business relations among politics, business, academic and administrative circles. It aims at creating an open dialogue between Europe and China as a way to improve economic relations and mutual understanding.

In 2018, we again expect high-ranking representatives from the Chinese government, EU institutions and the German government. The Chinese Co-initiator of the “Hamburg Summit“, the industrial organisation China Federation of Industrial Economic (CFIE), will once again bring along high-ranking business delegations to Hamburg.
