Breaking into the Chinese green construction sector


The Chinese construction market is one of the largest construction markets in the world and it is likely to keep growing - it is forecasted to grow at an annual average of 5% until 2023. Although, green building makes up a small proportion of China´s construction industry, government targets are giving sustainable building a boost and it is becoming increasingly significant in China.

The Chinese government has demonstrated a strong commitment to making green building a top priority by promoting more energy-efficient buildings. There are some signs of progress: the implementation of the green building rating system and China´s preferential policies for green housing. These offers great potential for European SMEs operating in the sector.

During this training session, organised by the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, the EU SME Centre and EUROCHAMBRES, our experts will provide a market overview, analyse the regulatory and policy framework of the green construction sector and provide practical information for those companies interested in accessing the Chinese Green Construction Sector.
