ChinaTalk with Dominik Declercq

The automotive industry in China has been the world's largest automotive market for nine consecutive years, and now holds one third of global vehicle sales. Chinese companies own 50 percent of the domestic market share and are also gradually building their international presence. With the green revolution, the country is the top producer and consumer of electric cars. All this makes China one of the most interesting and demanding markets for international carmakers.

Dominik Declercq, Chief Representative of the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) in China, will guide us through the current situation, focusing on the market structure, geography of production, and the outlook for European Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) and EU companies operating in the country. He will discuss the influence of green policies on the automotive sector and look at how technological advancements, such as Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV), autonomous cars and battery production, have been changing the industry. We will also discuss microchip shortages, global political shifts, and other challenges that impact the operations of EU car manufacturers in China.

The meeting will be hosted by Associate Professor Marcin Jacoby, Head of the Department of Asian Studies at SWPS University, and Zbigniew Niesobędzki, Ph.D., President of the Polish-Chinese Business Council - a partner of the ChinaTalk series.

ChinaTalk is a series of interviews with leading global experts on China and East Asia, produced jointly by the Polish Chinese Business Council (PCBC) and SWPS University.
