Chairman’s Corner

August 2nd, 2021

Dear DCCC Members,

The humid early summer 黄梅天 ‘plum season’ is finally over – and we got the big In-fa typhoon with us as a bargain right at the end. Now the real summer heat is upon us – not sure which one is better or worse, but I guess we are all used to it.

Some of our members have chosen to take a trip to Denmark for the summer – and many more have chosen a vacation to one of the myriads of natural wonders of China, that so many have never seen. In that sense, COVID is helping us explore new places in China, the country that has hosted us for so many years.

The summer is as usual low on chamber events, but we have had a few:

We had a Nanjing investment conference on July 13th and we have started the first event in the series ‘Sharp Minds’ on July 29th. The event was with the brilliant and inspiring marketer and writer Jacob Johansen and it also included the official launch of his new book: From Customer to User.  A lot of insights into consumer minds and also a ton of China experience and its relevance. Somehow turning the tables and disrupting the thinking around modern day consumer needs and behaviors.

August is coming up with the first ‘Mega City’ event on how Shanghai ‘s traffic is organized behind the scenes. Inspired by the utter chaos in the global shipping and forwarding market, we are also organizing a ‘The Global Shipping Chaos & Outlook’ event planned for August.

We at DCCC wish you the very best summer and a great time … looking forward to more participation this fall. We would like to remind you that not only the top leaders of our member companies are welcome at our events, but many of staff and managers from members companies are invited and welcome to participate in relevant events.

The warmest summer greetings!

Chairman’s Corner – Simon Lichtenberg

June 2nd, 2021

Dear DCCC Members,

The 100 years birthday celebration of the Chinese Communist party establishment in Shanghai on July 1st 1921 is occupying many government organizations at the same time, international transportation problems spinning out of control, is taking up the minds of traders and exporters. And the “黄梅天” most humid time in Shanghai is coming over us. We are certainly warming up for the summer.

DCCC had a jumpstart to a beginning hot season in Shanghai.

First of all during May we hosted/co-hosted 3 online events – but even more importantly, we carried through 6 live events in Shanghai.

The big highlight was the annual Summer BBQ event on 29th May where we had great participation and we had a top kitchen/grill team to serve Danish classics – it was a big night.

The HR group is now back in business and they had their first event at the consulate on 27th May “Optimizing HR Management Through Digital Technology” with some great speakers – I highly recommend ALL our members to get their HR manager and senior staff involved in the group. Please contact Ellen (ellen@dccc-shanghai.com) for more information.

Even as June is getting into the summer, we are not slowing down – and have planned 5 live events (pls. see the calendar) other than “beers & Hotdogs” mostly new initiatives – we welcome you all to come and be part of it. Due to Covid fewer people are travelling during the summer so we will keep the activity level normal, at least through June.

The new board has by now had two meetings and we are getting into working mode – having created teams and working groups engaging most of the board members into creating better events and value for the members. You will see more results of this over and after the summer.

We are looking forward to a summer seeing plenty of you!

Vice Chair’s Corner – Ann Sophie de Meester

Dear Members and Readers,After the latest AGM, the whole board has hit the ground running. A working-plan for the coming six months has been made and set in motion, and it is now full speed ahead on implementing it. We have by now learnt, that our new chairman’s delegation skills are very well developed! 😉

The key driver in the plan made for the upcoming months, is to create value for our members. Below are listed some of the initiatives we hope you will take full advantage of:

Working Groups
An additional HR working group has been added to the already existing Food WG and Legal & Finance WG.

  • The HR WG will mostly be run in Chinese, and we have an awesome kick off event planned on 27 May with the topic of “Digital transformation in HR management”. We very much hope, that the HR managers from all member companies will join, be inspired, learn and get some fresh inputs. The event will take place at the Danish consulate.
  • The legal and finance WG is taking place as breakfast meetings, with presentations of a specific topic, followed by very open round table discussions. The ones participating are CEOs, CFOs and senior managers. All nationalities are of course welcome, but the language spoken during the meetings is English. Please feel free to reach out to Ellen, if you would like to be notified of upcoming events for this group.
  • The food WG has recently had a very successful visit to Danish Crown’s factory. Feel free to join the food WG if you are in the F&B industry, or just like to eat, since tasting what is being discussed is a big part of these meetings.

Last year our summer BBQ was a great success, and this year Kim, Karin, Jeppe and Niels have again promised to make enough flæskesteg, pulled pork, syltede agurker and remoulade in order for everyone to be able to roll all the way home afterwards. Date is 29 May at Geneva, Hongqiao. Get your tickets here!

The Danish gala, aka BPOY, will be held on November 13th. We have been able to secure the Bvlgari hotel, which is the exact place where the original Shanghai Chamber of Commerce was established in 1912 during the Qing dynasty. We are working hard to make sure this becomes the party of the year, so we highly recommend you to already now start practicing your bowtie-tying skills and fiercest dance moves. More information to follow soon.

Also, a very warm welcome to our newest members, NBH and Boxon Packaging.

Only thing left to say is enjoy the beautiful spring, and the last day of the official May holiday!

Ann Sophie de Meester

Consulate General
To support Danish companies in Xuzhou Consul General Jakob Linulf had a meeting with  Mayor of Xuzhou together with Danfoss, LiqTech, Jensen and Baettr. Jakob Linulf also visited Vink Plastic.

Consul General Jakob Linulf opened the IE Expo on 20 April together with Mr. Peng Bin Vice Chairman of Chinese society for Environmental science and Mr. Zhao Lijun President of China Environmental chamber of Commerce. Jakob Linulf visited the Danish Export Association’s water pavilion and talked to representatives from Hoyer and Hempel. AVK and Grundfos were also represented the IE Expo and Jakob Linulf visited both companies to talk about their green water projects in China. During the IE expo Innovation Officer Heidi Yujie Su,E.I.T. attended the U-S-E Water project’s 2 session seminar about Drinking Water Distribution & Urban Water Loss and Energy Saving and CO2 Reduction Technology for Wastewater Treatment to share the collaboration experience between Danish water SMEs and Yixing Local companies under Nordic Sustainable Cities.

Starting in 2014, the City of Shanghai has collaborated with the Energy Foundation China, China Sustainable Transportation Centre(CSTC) and the Danish Urban Strategy company Gehl – Making Cities for People to develop the strategy “Towards a People Orientated Waterfront” to create a people-first approaches to all public space development along all of the Shanghai Huangpu Riverfront. Mr. Sun Yuanxin from CSTC guided Consul General Mr. Jakob Linulf on a walk along the south Bund to introduce the idea behind the strategy and implementation. In 2018, the strategy had resulted in implementation of more than 45 km transformed and continuous public spaces from the Yangpu district to the Xuhui district. Since then, even more of the 110km waterfront has been transformed. Same year Kristian Villadsen, Partner and Director of Gehl was awarded the Magnolia Award by the Municipal Government of Shanghai. One of the latest implementations from Gehl’s strategic work in Shanghai is full transformation of Nanjing East Road into a pedestrian street

Scries is developed through conversations with scientists at DTU Environment, ICOS Denmark, RERAF Risø, CLIMAITE at Copenhagen University and the Centre for Ice and Climate at the Niels Bohr Institute. The project grows out of Primer, an art, science and technology platform developed between Diakron and the Danish water technology company Aquaporin A/S.

With the MoU, Trade Council in China operationalizes the Danish Governments recently launched ‘Life Science Strategy’, offering significant opportunities for the Danish health sector. The ‘over the counter’ health product sector has grown significantly in China during  the COVID19 period and Danish product/brand analysis shows great potential for Danish products. At the event Danish GN Group and SME Camette also entered agreements with JD Health to further develop their online presence in #China.

Consular:

Visas and work permits to Denmark
Due to Covid-19, it has been very difficult to obtain a visa to Denmark for all foreigners, incl. Chinese nationals, for over a year now. The rules were relaxed on
21 April 2021, but it is still only possible to obtain a visa – and to enter Denmark with an existing visa – if you have a so-called “worthy purpose”. You can see the complete list of “worthy purposes” at the following link to the www.coronasmitte.dk homepage: Foreigners habitually resident abroad (coronasmitte.dk). Please check the link before making any decisions about travel, as the list of worthy purposes and entry requirements to Denmark in general is updated regularly.

On 21 April 2021, the rules for residence and work permits were also relaxed and the situation is now almost back to what it was before the pandemic. Read about the rules governing residence and work permits to Denmark at the following link to www.siri.dk : New to Denmark (nyidanmark.dk)

Last summer, Denmark moved its visa case handling in China to a new visa hub at the Consulate General of Denmark in Guangzhou. In Shanghai, it is still possible to hand in your visa application at the visa application centre (VFS): Denmark Visa Information In China – Home Page (vfsglobal.cn). The passport and documents are handed in to VFS, but the Danish Consulate General in Guangzhou handle the visa application and make the decision, together with the Danish Immigration Service in Copenhagen. The passport, with a visa or a refusal letter, is picked up at the VFS application centre in Shanghai after a decision has been made in the case. You can also ask to have your passport and documents returned to you by courier.

March Newsletter 2021

Chairman’s Corner – Simon Lichtenberg

Dear Members and Readers

With the arrival of Spring in March, it brought about a new season of change and along with that an Annual General Meeting that determined who will be on the board of the DCCC for the year 2021. Before I introduce myself as the new Chairman, I’d first like to give a big thanks to those from the board who have now left us. Firstly, Kim Scheibel for the great work he has done as Chairman leading the DCCC this past year. If you have met Kim, then you know I have big shoes to fill, both with the work he’s done and the height he carries himself at! I’d also like to thank Susanne Klemp and Niels Thomsen, they have been a huge part of making our DCCC F&B Working group a success and I wish them all the best moving forward!

Now on to the new team, this year we welcome some familiar faces and new faces to continue on the board. I, Simon Lichtenberg, have been with the Danish Chamber since the very beginning and I am very happy to take on the role of Chairman working alongside a capable team consisting of Ann Sophie de Meester who is now Vice-Chair, Lars Norregaard continuing as Treasurer and Manuel Veiga Aldemira as Secretary to the board. The remaining board members are as follows:

  • Lotte Norgreen, Vikinor
  • Andreas Lundqvist, Danfoss
  • Christy Chen Møller, ChinaBase Travel
  • Lars Myrup, Stokke
  • Yingli Wu, Wrist
  • Poul Kristensen, WE-Dragons
  • Klaus Bjorkgren, Nordic Match
  • Jonas Frank, Martin Bencher

With the new team and general manager Ellen-Anan Kier, we aim to make the Danish Chamber a better and stronger organization than it’s ever been before, and on that note, be ready to welcome Ellen to your offices so we can tell you more about what we do and hear about what you’re interested in!

In this new year, you’ll see offline events kick up a notch and a reduction in online webinars. 2020 was a year with countless online activities from all sorts of organisations, but with the vaccines rolling out and restrictions within China loosening their grip, we expect to host more events where you’re able to network, learn and develop yourself around like-minded peers!

As you may already know, the DCCC is also making strides towards becoming a Pan-China Danish Chamber and there are many things are underway to make that happen in the near future!

I’d also like to give a warm welcome to our newest member Nordic Match who joined in March, they are M&A and strategy advisors with their headquarters in Shanghai. Welcome to the DCCC!

Below you can see the events that we held in March and the upcoming events in April, we hope to see you there!

That’s all from me for now,

Kind regards,

Simon Lichtenberg

Newsletter February 2021

Chairman’s Corner – Kim Scheibel

              Dear Members and Readers,

I will like to start this month’s newsletter with a straight copy of some wise historic words from my fellow Boardmember Simon Lichtenberg: According to legend, the Jade Emperor said the order of the zodiac signs would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Ox was about the first to arrive, but was tricked by the Rat into giving him a ride. As they arrived, the Rat jumped down and landed ahead of the Ox. Thus, the Ox became the second animal in the Zodiac.  The Chinese Ox is calm, methodical, steady and hard working. It is considered someone you can depend on through thick and thin.We will say: Welcome to the year of the Ox! We will certainly do our best to make the year of the Ox a more dependable one than the Ratty year that just passed.

You are receiving our February “newsletter” at little late, because this is at the same time going to be my personal “goodbye” to DCCC this time around, as I will be returning to Denmark in the Summer, I will step down as Chairman of DCCC East at our upcoming Annual General Meeting on 24th March, where we look forward to see all our members in person this year, please sing up beforehand so we can reserve a seat for you.

It has been an incredible year for all of us here in China, but also for DCCC where physical meetings at times were not recommended, we have therefore turned to a new way of meeting – Webinars have become the new norm, my personal opinion is that we have possible had too many Webinars combined, but all beginnings are difficult, so I’m sure we will all find a comfortable level of combining Webinars with meetings face-to-face, once the vaccines are rolled out globally.

It had become pretty clear for a number of industries that Webinars is a super alternative to face-to-face meetings, so they are definitely here to stay, but business travel, hotel stays and dinners will hopefully find ways to recover in the future, as these businesses have possibly suffered the most during the global lock-down.

To serve our member better in DCCC East, you know we employed Ellen-Anan Kier as our membership manager, but what we did not know at the time was that our GM Laura Li, decided that 7 years with DCCC was sufficient, so instead of having 2 full time office staff members, we were back to 1. We have therefore decided to promote Ellen-Anan Kier to General Manager of DCCC East by 1st March and then look for an Intern to assist Ellen on a daily basis in the office.

Our Team Management training sessions in Chinese have started up again after the temporary Covid-19 stop, the first sessions are already fully booked (and running), but if you have future candidates then please do not hesitate to contact Ellen (ellen@dccc-shanghai.com) to be put on the next available training session.

On the collaboration side, then you will see more Shanghai events in the future “cross boarder” jointly hosted with our Nordic neighbors, simply to expand our network and business opportunities, as well as social networks.

It is with great pleasure that we can welcome Jacob Jensen Design as our latest new member of DCCC, it is fantastic to be joined by this great design brand, which I trust most of us know from useful and decorative items in our homes and offices.

As you can see from below list then we held fewer than normal events in February, but I trust you all enjoyed the quiet periods during Chinese New Year and are now fully recharged to do whatever is required to prosper in the year of the Ox.

I personally look very much forward to see who will fill the next Board seats here in DCCC East and to whom I shall pass the Chairmanship over to, therefore remember to sign up for the AGM, you vote is very important for the future of DCCC and our collaborative network platform here in/around Shanghai. See you on 24th March.

Very best regards and thank you to the entire Board for having put up with me during the last year,
Kim Scheibel

Danes Worldwide Corner

Expat Danes are without access to the Covid vaccine

We have recently had quite a number of inquiries from members all over the world who are currently without access to the Covid vaccine. As expats, they are not entitled to receive it in their country of residence, and they are not included in Denmark’s official plans for vaccination.

In mid-January we sent a letter to the Minister of Health to call attention to the matter; there was no response. However, the Health and Senior Citizens’ Committee of the Danish Parliament sent an invitation to a virtual meeting on 9 February in which Secretary General Anne Marie Dalgaard and Chair of the Board Susanne Rumohr Hækkerup had an opportunity to describe the scope of the problem and to request that politicians address the matter as soon as possible to assist the many Danes living abroad.

Subsequently we sent a briefing to the Committee: https://www.danes.dk/en/briefing-presented-by-danes-worldwide-to-the-health-and-senior-citizens-committee-of-the-danish-parliament/

Chairman’s Corner – Kim Scheibel

Dear Members and Readers, It has been a very busy period in/around the DCCC East office as our General Manager Laura Li has decided to find a new employer, we all wish Laura the best of luck in her future career.

It was therefore with due diligence that we had started to process of employing Ellen Kier as Membership Assistant. Ellen will now take over a number of Laura’s duties, while we look for yet one more office staff member. You have probably seen elsewhere that we are looking for 3 interns to be shared between the 3 DCCC Chambers in China, one of them being based here in Shanghai. Welcome Ellen – and thank you to Ann Sophie and here colleagues for assisting in all the paperwork to get Ellen onboard. Ellen can be contacted by email: ellen@dccc-shanghai.com

An other important event is soon coming up namely our Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is going to be held on 24th March at the Radisson Blu Shanghai New World Hotel (further details will follow in due time). We will, as usual, need to vote at the AGM for who is going to serve as DCCC East board member(s) for the next 12 months. At last years AGM, we approved to change our by-laws on a few points in relation to the board. We are currently 14 members, this will be reduced to 12 members for the coming year. As such, we will only need to vote for 6 candidates, as 6 members of the current board will stay on for one more year.

So if you are interested in a DCCC East Board position, now is the time to start thinking about it, you will need to send in your application either to Ellen or undersigned (chairman@dccc-shanghai.com)

As already indicated during last years AGM, then I will only be able to serve 1 year as DCCC Chairman, as my contract with my “dayjob” is running out in June, thereafter returning to Denmark. So if you see yourselves fit and with a little extra precious time to spare, then I can highly recommend to get involved with DCCC to run for the board and potentially become the next Chairman. I have thoroughly enjoyed to responsibility.

Due to the current Covid-19 situation in Shanghai, we have had to postpone our Team Management Chinese Training from February until after Chinese New Year.

Despite Covid-19, we did manage to the hold following events in January:

January 12        DCCC & DCBF webinar: China-IoT Nation a closer look at China’s development with AI and Big Data
January 14        DCCC & DCBF webinar: Ready to negotiate in one hour!

Danes Worldwide Corner

Expat Danes can’t get a COVID shot 

A number of expat Danes are caught in a worrisome bind in that they are unable to obtain a COVID vaccination through the health services system in their country of residence, through a private clinic, or in Denmark.

Danes Worldwide has previously raised the matter with the Minister of Health and others. While we await a response, we communicate regularly with several Danish newspapers. They are looking to get in touch with expat Danes who are in this situation.

Please be in touch with Danes Worldwide as soon as possible if you are.

Write to redaktion@danes.dk and describe your specific situation briefly, indicating your name, country of residence, and telephone number.

Among others, daily newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad has covered the matter: https://www.kristeligt-dagblad.dk/danmark/udlandsdanskere-ma-kigge-langt-efter-covidvaccination (in Danish).

Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership
Executive Director of ICDK Shanghai Martin Rune Hoxer has shared his thoughts on the newly established free trade agreement the ‘Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership’ (RCEP). The agreement is the largest of its kind and constitutes two of the three largest economies in the world, and is the first to include ChinaJapan, and South Korea within the same agreement.

There is reason to believe that an agreement like this can have an effect for Danish companies’ ability to expand their products, designed for the Chinese market, into new territories. At ICDK Shanghai, we are following the impact of the deal, in order to explore and facilitate those possibilities this agreement brings along for Danish companies.

A NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG RETURNING DANES 

A new career building network, Young Global Danes, is being launched by Danes Worldwide. It is supported by a grant from the Tuborg Foundation of DKK 250,000.

Backed by the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and trade organization Danish Shipping, the initiative meets a strong demand among young Danes aged 18 to 26 who live abroad and want to move to or return to Denmark to study or work but find that they lack insight into the business environment in Denmark.

The network is intended to help such young people settle in Denmark and leverage their skills in the country’s international job market. The grant support enables delivery of a thorough introduction to job markets and career opportunities in Denmark for global Danes with highly desirable intercultural experience. Young Global Danes will be working to bring employers and candidates together through site visits at Danish companies and through educational events covering career opportunities, competencies, and workplace culture.

Dear DCCC friends and colleagues,If it was possible to push “Alt+Ctrl+Del” twice and restart 2020, then I believe many would like to do so. 2020 has possibly been the strangest year within my +40year working career, but despite the challenges, then there have also been good moments at least for some. So let us all look towards 2021 with hope for a safer future, with a Covid-19 vaccine hopefully becoming available for everyone, so we can return to our “new” normal.

There will without a doubt here in China be an increased focus on the “Blue Sky” drive, so any industry who have an environmental agenda;  product; idea or service to offer should really focus on China in the coming years. China is one of the (only) countries in the world, who have the power and financial strength to transform ideas to reality right now.

The collaboration between the 3 DCCC chambers in China is growing closer and closer. The Chairman group recently met to discuss future cooperation points, starting with the low hanging fruits, like aligning our look at the various on-line platforms and the way we are seen from the outside world, more initiatives will continue to follow in the coming months.

Our CFO group (Finance/IT/Legal) is up running again here in Shanghai, another great forum to exchange views and ideas among equals. Likewise then our DCCC Pan China Food Group is just about to meet for the first time here in Shanghai on 9th Dec., so if you are “hungry” to join then please do not hesitate to contact the DCCC Secretariat. Hopefully within long then we will also manage to restart our HR group again – if interested in joining this group, then please let us hear from you.

Congratulations to Emerging Leaders Chinese Training on 10th November. Where 25 participants from Danish, Finnish and Swedish companies attended the three different training courses which ran from September to November 2020.

Within December we will start sending out renewals of DCCC membership, so look out for the nice letters from Laura. Remember that we during last year AGM agreed to introduce some changes to the fees, so do not be surprised you have had almost 1 year to get used to the small increases.

Let me also make a warm welcome to our new individual member:
Jan Vilhelm Iversen, representing CMA CGM, but being a Danish national, Jan of course wants to support DCCC – Thanks.

I will also like to thank Vikinor and especially Lotte Norgreen, for arranging together with Henkes a fantastic Danish Christmas evening. And also a huge thank you to all the “Mandelgave” sponsors: Vikinor, GN ReSound, RAINS, Anthon Berg, Danish Crown, Maersk, Wagas, Nordic Hub China, Brothers Kebab, Royal Greenland, Laiba and HENKES.

When you read these lines you have probably already burned down the Christmas candlelight first number with only 23 more days to go to Xmas, I will like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas or as we say in Danish “En rigtig Glædelig Jul” to you and your families.

Danes Worldwide Corner

“Turnaround times for legal questions back to normal 

In the time since our legal department began offering assistance in legal matters in March 2020, our legal advisors Karoline Blyt, Helene Larsen, and Anne Louise Schmidt have handled more than 2,000 questions from members of Danes Worldwide.

The advisors worked as hard as they could but were unable to keep up with demand. Turnaround times reached 4-6 weeks, much to our regret. By now, however, we have managed to get through the backlog, and w are pleased to say that turnaround times are back to normal.

Should you have a question or concern requiring legal advice – say, regarding citizenship, family unification, a visa, or a residence permit – please feel free to write to jura@danes.dk
