China’s construction industry has been a driving force in the country’s economy since the 80s, in particular, the majority of the projects have been developed on urban areas. This has caught the attention of foreign architecture and engineering companies which presence in the market has been growing at an unprecedent rate since the 90s.
Foreign architects and related guilds are reputed for quality and creativity and their opportunities usually lie in the commercial real estate sector since the residential property is still dominated by local architects.
This workshop organised by the EU SME Centre, EUROCHAMBRES and Sicindustria with the support of the Ordine degli architetti pianificatori paesaggisti conservatori della provincia di Palermo and EEN allows SMEs and professionals operating in the architectural fields to identify market opportunities and set up a road map to China.
The event will be held in English and it is open to European SMEs, entrepreneurs and professionals looking for opportunities in the Chinese market.
