Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is our most important event, and a great opportunity for DCBF-members to network with each other, and to get updated on the current state of Danish Chinese Business Forum as well as plans for the future. Furthermore, this event usually also includes a themed session on a relevant topic, featuring speakers and interactive involvement from the members.

If you are facing a problem at your company related to China within your field of work, you may find help in our Focus Groups.

When navigating in the Danish-Chinese business environment many members face challenges related to highly specialised areas. While you may find yourself dealing with a specific issue at your company, you are likely to have colleagues in our other member companies facing similar issues.

We have established our Focus Groups to help provide an exchange of knowledge and expertise among our group members focusing on solving a specific challenge.

These forums may focus on (but are not limited to):

  • Blockchain to support sales
  • EdTech/HR
  • IPR / Trademark
  • New Go-to-Market Models
  • Power Purchase Agreements
  • VAT / Tax and customs issues

"I have been working with DCBF for approx. half a year, where we together have built up an Experience Group with Chinese sustainable energy in focus. I must give credit to DCBF and to Hans Henrik Pontoppidan for the efforts and the excitement put into this process. Without DCBF we would not have created this group of Danish companies, and we would then have missed all the added knowledge shared about China." - Kenneth Dupont, Senior Energy Manager, Danfoss

If you are interested in joining one of the existing groups or have a suggestion for a new discipline area/new specialist area, please contact our Secretary General Hans Henrik Pontoppidan by e-mail at: or call him at +45 20200481


Facilitating contact between member organizations and relevant stakeholders is one of our primary missions. Our network comprises a wide range of stakeholders, ranging from private companies to public organizations and entities such as Ministries and Cities.

Our stakeholders include, but are not limited to:

  • The Chinese Embassy in Denmark
  • Danish Ministries (e.g. Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs).
  • Professional Associations (e.g. Danish Chamber of Commerce, DCCC, EKF, Danish Agriculture and Food Council and Medicoindustrien).
  • Danish Cities and Municipalities.
  • Danish Universities


Our network is based on knowledge-sharing, and in order to facilitate this in an effective and time-saving way, we established our webinar initiative in 2019, where subject-matter experts present a topic related to Danish-Chinese Business, followed by an interactive Q&A and discussion with the participants.

We collaborate with the Danish Chamber of Commerce in China (DCCC) and Danish Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong (DCC-HK) for this initiative, thereby extending and enhancing the knowledge-sharing network, in order to provide the best up-to-date information about China to our members. 

In 2022, we hosted more than 25 webinars together with DCCC and DCC-HK, where several hundred individuals from member organizations tuned in to the webinars, gaining valuable information from the experts. 

Examples of Joint Chamber Webinars:

  • Effective Business Development in China​
  • Approaches and Tactics for Marketing
  • Cross-culture Management (incl. Remote Management)
  • Effective use of Chinese Social Media
  • China's Cybersecurity & Data Law Development
