Business and Investment Aspects of the Czech Days in Shanghai

The Czech Days in Shanghai in April 2015 will be another opportunity to further intensify the Czech-Chinese cooperation in business and investment. The event will be attended by dozens of Czech companies who will seek new opportunities on the Chinese market in various areas including new technologies. Emphasis will also be on Chinese investment possibilities in the Czech Republic.

The Czech-China Chamber of Collaboration is behind the Czech participation at the China Shanghai International Technology Fair (CSITF) 2015 and other parts of the Czech Days programme. The Chamber is one of the most active players in Czech-Chinese bilateral relations and the progress made in different areas of cooperation is very much a result of the Chamber’s long-term dedication. This year, the Chamber has in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic, the CzechTrade Agency and the Czech Embassy in Beijing set its focus on promoting Czech technologies. In the Czech Republic, the Chamber organises regularly the Chinese Investment Forum and puts emphasis on regional cooperation. The Czech-China Chamber of Collaboration along with its Chinese partner – the company CEFC – and the Czech Embassy in Beijing is the main organiser of the wide range of activities taking place as part of the Czech Days in Shanghai.

The main part of the business programme of the Czech Days in Shanghai in April 2015 is the participation of more than 70 Czech companies at the China Shanghai International Technology Fair (CSITF), 23. – 25. 4. 2015 (see attachment). This year, Czech Republic is also the partner country of this fair and thanks to this special role it is not just promoting Czech technologies (promotional stand 550 m2). Czech Republic is also promoting itself as a touristic destination and an active regional player (promotional stand 120m2). The participants will be businesses from many high-tech sectors: environmental technology, energy, machinery, aviation, IT, nano- and bio-technologies, health and others. There will also be the traditional automobile industry and transport engineering, glassmaking, financial services and educational and research institutions. Czech Republic presents itself at the fair as the “technological heart” of Europe – hence the name “Technology from the Heart”.

Czech Republic considers this also to be an opportunity to present potential areas for cooperation in the context of China’s recently published “Belt and Road Initiative”. We can offer several areas of possible cooperation within this initiative – such as aviation, machinery, new technologies, health (incl. traditional Chinese medicine) or services. The technological solutions that the Czech Republic is offering are in harmony not only with the Belt and Road Initiative but also with the current reform processes taking place China, which focus on clean environment, innovations, urbanisation and services.

Both main partners of the Czech Days from the Czech business sector – the Škoda Auto company and the PPF Group are already active in Shanghai. Škoda Auto has been operating in Shanghai for many years through JV Shanghai Volkswagen. Home Credit, which is one of the two PPF subsidiaries in China, started operating in Shanghai recently in the area of consumer loans. Many other Czech companies are present in Shanghai, as well as the company CEFC – an important investor in the Czech Republic, partner of the Czech-Chinese Chamber of Cooperation and a co-organiser of the Czech Days in Shanghai.

The programme of the Czech Days in Shanghai will begin on the 22nd of April in the morning with the visit to the fair Auto Shanghai 2015, where Škoda Auto will introduce two of its new models at a Chinese premiere: the new Škoda Fabia and shortly after its premiere in Geneva also the new Škoda Superb.

On the 22nd of April in the afternoon, the Czech ministers who are members of the official delegation of the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Parliament J. Hamáček (Minister of Industry and Trade J. Mládek, Minister of Health S. Němeček and the Chairperson of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic R. Bízková) will meet with their counterparts from the central government and the Shanghai government. At the same time, the Czech business delegation will be divided into sectors (aviation, environment and high-tech) and visit the relevant development zones in Shanghai. During these “field trips” organised by MOFCOM Shanghai, Czech companies will have an opportunity to closely acquaint themselves with specific possibilities of cooperation.

During the first day of the CSITF (23. 4.) there will be a „Czech-China Business Forum 2015: Trade, Investment and Technology“(14:00 to 17:00), which will also include matchmaking for Czech and Chinese companies. The Forum will open with a speech of the Minister of Industry and Trade J. Mládek. Presentations will be then given by all the main institutions, which are part of the numerous Czech business delegation: Czech Chamber of Commerce (www.komoracz.eu), Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (www.tacr.cz), CzechTrade (www.czechtrade.cz), CzechInvest (www.czechinvest.org), Association for Foreign Investment (www.afi.cz) and the Light Aircraft Association of the Czech Republic (www.laacr.cz).

On the 24th of April, the business representatives will travel to the regions. The head of the Czech delegation along with businesses from the Czech Pilsen Region will travel to Hangzhou (Zhejiang), where they will also meet with the management of the Chinese company Alibaba. The visit will be a conclusion of the Pilsen Region programme in Hangzhou, which will already start on the 20th of April. A delegation led by the Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region will travel to Suzhou (Jiangsu). A “Czech-China Technology Cooperation Day” workshop (10:00 to 14:00) will take place there and about 50 Czech companies will present their technological projects. The representatives of the Moravian-Silesian Government will also travel with some Czech companies to Nanjing (Jiangsu) on the 22nd of April. An investment seminar taking place there will be called “Invest in the Czech Republic – Your Gateway to Europe” (13:00 to 17:00). Invitations to both seminars are attached.

On the 25th of April at 10:18, an opening of a MOSER store will take place in Shanghai with the participation of the official delegation, the top management of MOSER and its exclusive distributor CEFC.

Business cooperation will also be a key aspect of the programme in Beijing during the 20th and 21st of April 2015. The Minister of Industry and Trade J. Mládek will support more than 15 Czech companies actively participating in the fair for machinery technology CIMT 2015 (21st April, morning). The cooperation of Czech machinery companies with their Chinese partners has a long tradition and high-tech machines and transport equipment form more than 60% of Czech exports to China. The delegation will be met in Beijing also by the Chinese Minister of Health Li Bin. Health is one of the fastest developing areas in the Czech-Chinese cooperation.

Although the main idea currently is the presentation of the Czech Republic in Shanghai and partly in Beijing, the Czech Republic plans to further use the “Czech Days” concept in the coming years in promoting bilateral relations (not only in the area of trade and investment) also in other Chinese cities and rapidly developing areas of China.
