China Railway Express China - Denmark: Opportunities for Danish Companies

Date: October 28, 2021

Event: Webinar

Time: 10.00 am - 11.00 am

renewable-energy

In March 2021, the China-Europe Express Chang’an (Xi’an-Denmark) route was launched. The route implements a rail-sea combination (from Kaliningrad, Russia to Fredericia, Denmark by sea) and is a cost-effective and fast alternative to air freight and sea freight. Compared to air freight, rail freight is less costly and more sustainable, and compared to sea freight, it is much faster.

If you would like to know more then sign up to the event to hear from the following speakers: Mr. Gao Xingle from The Embassy of China in Denmark, Hans Henrik Pontoppidan from Danish-Chinese Business Forum, Zhao Wenwei from the Xi’an ITL Group and Tine Jørgensen from DSV.

Expansion as a Venture: How to Break into the Chinese Market. An Investor Perpsective

Date: November 02, 2021

Event: Webinar

Time: 09.00 - 10.00 (Denmark) / 16.00 - 17.00 (China)

renewable-energy

“Expansion as a venture” means that multinationals should see themselves as a venture again when entering China. This means starting small, looking closely at the market, being entrepreneurial, adapting constantly, hedging bets, keeping the burn-rate low, moving fast etc. Basically, it means to be a young company again and to grow up in a challenging but rewarding environment. Seeing “Expansion as a venture” is simple in theory, but hard in practice. At LvS Partners, they apply this approach in the pre- and post-investment expansion of their portfolio companies (their value-added strategy). In this webinar they will share some of their experiences and are open to discuss expansion strategies contemplated by the participants.​

Agriculture & Fisheries

Sino-Danish Government-to- Government Cooperation within Food, Agriculture & Fisheries, Environment & Water and Sustainable Urban Development

Date: May 11, 2021

Time: 09:00

Event: Webinar


The area of food, agriculture & fisheries has traditionally been highly regulated and governed by government policies and trade barriers. In order to promote the cooperation in these areas between China and Denmark and overcome the barriers many protocols and agreements have been signed between China and Denmark. To this comes the continuous seeking of common areas where China and Denmark can cooperate in order to create the basis for the introduction of Danish solutions for a more sustainable, safe and efficient food production. To enhance this cooperation the SSC-project on Food and Agriculture was introduced 5 years ago and is now in its second phase. It has two tracks: One on improving food safety and another on resource efficiency and food loss and waste.

Within the policy areas of environment, water and sustainable urban development the goal of the Sino-Danish government cooperation has been to create Chinese interest for the Danish solutions and also to contribute to the green development of the environment in China. The areas are also governed by cooperation agreements between the Danish Ministry of Environment and the Chinese Ministry for Environment (MEE) and Ministry of Water Resources (MWR). The Sector cooperation on environment has focus on water resource management and wastewater management working particularly with the provincial level in Hebei, Fujian, Beijing and Jiangsu. The sector cooperation on Sustainable Urban Development is carried out between Beijing and Copenhagen and focuses on circular construction, climate change adaptation, waste water management, and energy efficiency in existing buildings.

Participants will be introduced to the government cooperation with the two areas, the various programme activities and hear how the business community can play a role and benefit from the cooperation.
