About the Association

CEATEC Shanghai is a half governmental half business platform that advances the global interests of European and Chinese businesses.


Registered under the Ministry of Civil Affairs and fully accredited by Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) in 2000, China-Europe Association for Technical and Economic Cooperation (CEATEC) is the only non-profit organization in China that is dedicated to the promotion of trade and commercial ties between China and Europe. All the activities of CEATEC are supervised by MOFCOM.

We do so through advocacy that calls for an open system of world trade, technology exchange, finance and investment, where business can flourish and contribute to economic growth, human welfare and environmental protection in Europe and China as well. 

CEATEC Shanghai works tirelessly to harmonize international trade and commercial practices, promoting practical and reliable services to international business and to improve visibility, professionalism and connection among Industrial parks in developed and developing regions.

CEATEC Shanghai members utilise their affiliations with the major global business organizations to develop contacts with business and government leaders around the world. By helping to shape the international regulatory environment and to expand market access for European products and services in China market, CEATEC Shanghai helps members to lower their costs of doing business in China and in Europe and to achieve long-term profitability.
