This Position Paper of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is the culmination of nine months of dedicated work by 41 working groups and sub-working groups and forums. This year’s Executive Position paper outlines, how over the last year, there has been a significant shift in focus at European companies' headquarters (HQs) when evaluating China.

By prioritizing ideology over economic concerns, China's business environment is becoming less predictable, reliable and efficient. While opportunities for European companies remain, they must now develop strategies to deal with an ever-growing list of risks stemming from both emerging legislation—within and outside of China—and geopolitical developments. Join us to understand the key drivers behind these trends and their implications for European business.

By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.
