Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen
Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

One month has passed since the last letter and as always a lot of things has happened in our little world.

One of the things we have created are the new email addresses of the Chairman and the Vice Chairman in order for all  of you to communicate with us directly. They are Chairman@dccc-shanghai.com and Vicechairman@dccc-shanghai.com  respectively. Doing this would also simplify the change of people holding these posts in the future.  We hope that we will be hearing from you soon, sharing your ideas, feedback, wishes etc as you already probably do with ExecutiveDirector@dccc-shanghai.com and EventManager@dccc-shanghai.com.

Since I stepped in as the Chairman of the DCCC, we have had  7 events with more than 300 participants.  We have had the Danish Friday, the Danish Easter Lunch arranged with our YP , A Rapidly Changing World – Danish Interest’s and Cooperation with China by Ambassador Mr. A. Carsten Damsgaard,  Apple & DJI: The Future of the Drone Industry, The Emerging Leadership Excellence Course which was done with the Swedish chamber, The How to handle Shadow Management,  The Evolving China and the Regulatory and Compliance Landscape in cooperation with other chambers, The Danish Expats – Untapped source for Denmark & Danish Economy and lastly, How to set up a company by the YP. We try to cater to every individual’s interests and also tackle relevant issues in our times now and that’s how we come up with the topics and theme of  our events.

On the topic of events, the DCCC has an amazing event to offer to its members. We have arranged a free visit at the Shanghai Hans Christian Andersen Paradise Park  on the 20th of May. This is considered a special opportunity for the DCCC members as the Grand Opening of the park will still be In June 2017. We will get the chance to experience the Hans Christian Andersen Park before the rest does and for free!

To give a short introduction about the park, it has 2 major big structures one of which is the Andersen Museum. The museum has 3 floors. The 1st floor has life size papercut characters like the little mermaid etc. The 2nd floor which is very interesting is dedicated to Hans Christian Andersen. It has paintings, photos, books, tv screen all talking about his life, how he started writing etc. Almost like a history or biography of Hans Christian Andersen. The 3rd floor is more Chinese- Denmark related where they feature the person who interpreted the book of Hans Christian Andersen, the award given by the queen to the author, the Chinese version of all the Hans Christian Andersen books. The museum was designed by the Odense City Museum who  also donated some statues, original books etc. The 2nd big structure is the Castle. It has 2 floors. The first floor has the high technology games and the 2nd floor has an indoor playground which is the biggest in Shanghai to date. There are other structures like the one with a virtual reality headset that shows the universe etc. The other one is the Swan Castle for dining or functions. There are rides the merry-go-round, giant slide etc all over the property which the kids enjoy.

We have sent out the invitation a few days ago and have received some sign-ups already. I encourage the others to sign up too. This will be truly a great experience for everybody specially for the children. Can you imagine the kids learning about Hans Christian Andersen in Shanghai?

I hope you all continue supporting all these events we have created for our valued members.

I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Sincerely Yours,
Poul G. Kristensen

Chairman’s Corner – Poul G. Kristensen

Dear Members and Friends of DCCC,

 At the AGM held last week I was honored to be elected Chairman of DCCC Shanghai. I would like to thank you all for your trust in me and I promise to do my very best together with Maria, Laura and the rest of the board, to make 2017 another fantastic year for DCCC.

I was a member of the DCCC board in 2011 to 2012. DCCC and I am fortunate that  Janus Castro Grimnitz has accepted to stay as the Vice Chairman and share his experiences with me. Niels Roed will remain as the Treasurer and Mathias Boyer is the new Secretary. I may be new in the board but I will definitely be supported by an experienced team.

We want to thank the former board members Glen Mikkelsen, Paul Kristensen and Rasmus Riisgaard who left for various reasons, as well as those I have mentioned earlier plus Emil Hauch Jensen ,Trine Roland Westergaard, Gitte Soe, Kjeld Stark, Jakob Sonnenberg, Simon Lichtenberg,  Christy Chen Moeller, Alexander ( YP representative) and Nicolai Prytz (Honorary member) for their support in 2016.

Apart from myself being new in the board, we also gained one more who is Sarah Chu, one of the young stars during last year’s Gala. She has been quite active in the Danish community and we are happy to have her

Since it’s very important for us to make sure, that you know who we are and what we do at DCCC, I have decided to re-use a very good explanation written by Emil last year

As a member of DCCC you are actually an “Owner” of our organization with the right to nominate and vote for someone to represent you at the Board of Directors. This is done once a year in March at the Annual General Meeting (or AGM for short).

The board meets once a month with their primary responsibility being to plan new events and use their network to reach out to great speakers etc. The board members volunteer their time and none of them are paid to be on the board.

The board is also responsible to oversee the work of our Secretariat consisting of our Executive Director Maria Olivia M. Castro and our Event Manager Laura Li. The secretariat works full time running the chamber and sometimes at night to make sure DCCC delivers the best events that the members can enjoy not just for networking opportunities but for accessing knowledge sharing as well.

When you join an event you become our “Customer”. So as a member of DCCC you are both the Owner and the Customer – that is why we say “DCCC is for the Members by the Members”. That also mean we will continue to measure ourselves not by the profit we generate but by the value we provide to our members.

In 2017 we will do our very best to maintain the quality and quantity of events of the last two years. We also aim to increase the number of corporate members.

Since everything we do is based on the great volunteer effort put in by the girls at the secretariat, by the board, by our sponsors and by our members, who now and then step in to lend a helping hand, we would like to ask you all to keep on supporting us, so 2017 can be another great year for DCCC Shanghai.

By the way, we still have seats for the Danish Easter Lunch on the 8th of April at Mi Thai. Please sign up, spread the word and help us make this a good experience for everybody. Please click HERE to sign up

I will personally be there to greet you all at the Easter Lunch!

Sincerely Yours,
Poul G. Kristensen

  INDIVIDUALS kick-started the Young Professionals Mentorship Program in Shanghai

The Young Professional Mentorship Program  kick-started at a workshop the 25th of March 2017 at  the Tian An Center in Shanghai. The program is offered to ambitious Young Professionals in Shanghai and consists of 12-20 mentees and a mentor for each. The program will run for a year and include 3 counselling sessions, 3 workshops and 4-5 meetings between the mentees and their assigned mentor. INDIVIDUALS will continuously follow-up on the mentees progress and development in the program.

Before attending this workshop, the mentees had a 1:1 counselling session with INDIVIDUALS. At the counselling session, the mentees were presented for their behavioural profile and was challenged to articulate and cultivate their thoughts and aspirations on career, professional capabilities, (tough) decisions and personal development.

Johan Hillers, one of the partners in INDIVIDUALS, started the workshop Saturday by setting the expectations for the program. He emphasized that perspectives and reflections are vital to gain a higher self-awareness and to find meaning within what you are doing, which is one of the primary goals for the program.

Alexander Petersen, President at the Young Professionals (DCCC), presented the mentors in the program and the connection between DCCC and INDIVIDUALS. The mentors are all from DCCC and their role will also be to give the mentee perspective and share their experiences and advice the mentees on their career path

After the short introduction by Johan and Alexander, the mentees had the chance to introduce themselves and their goals for the program to the group. This is due to another primary goal for the workshop, which is to help the mentees reflect on their own self-image in relation to others.

Based on the statements and feedback from the mentees on the first sessions and workshop – everything indicates that the program has had a successful start. All the mentees find it very valuable to work with themselves and their career in the structured setting that DCCC and INDIVIDUALS provide.

The next thing in the program is to assign the mentees to their mentor. The assignment of the mentor will be based on the findings from the counselling session. INDIVIDUAL will get in contact with each mentor before they assign a mentee to ensure a good match between the mentees focus areas and the mentors experience.

We look forward to an exciting and challenging year for the mentees.

They also read the congratulatory letters from Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Chinese President Xi Jinping, and delivered respective keynote speeches on the prospects for bilateral tourism cooperation in the future.
“It is my great pleasure to be here witnessing the opening of China-Denmark Tourism Year 2017. From the very beginning, this year bodes well for more exchanges between our two countries. Not only will tourism remain popular between the peoples, but also will we see cooperation potentials in various fields where Denmark has peerless expertise and know-how in the world, such as fashion and design, green energy, food and agriculture and health,” said Brian Mikkelsen, Danish Minister of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs.

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Friends of the Chamber!

I would like to introduce you to our new Executive Director Maria Olivia Castro!

Maria is a long time friend of the chamber and has often supported us to arrange events. She has a strong background in sales and marketing with more than 20 years experience, 10 of which she was running her own agency that did events for a long list a famous international brands.

We are very excited that Maria agreed to become the next Executive Director of DCCC – she brings with her an amazing drive and lots of experience. I personally have very high expectations for DCCC’s future, and I could not imagine a better qualified ED to lead us into that future.

Maria started her job this week, and I know she is very excited to get to know you all! Come say hello to her tonight at our Danish Friday starting 19:30 at EQ on Hankou Rd. – This will also be the official farewell party for Anneli, so it will be a mix of celebration and tears of sadness, and our friends from EQ has promised to prepare some great Danish craft beer to suit both occasions.

By the way, do already now mark your calendar for March 23rd where we will hold our Annual General Meeting – both tonight and our AGM will be a great chance to meet your board members and let us know what you hope to see more of from DCCC in 2017.

This will be the last newsletter you receive from me. As is our custom in the DCCC board, the Chairman can only sit for two periods, and I will be handing over the seat to the next Chairman following the AGM in March.

I struggle to find words to describe how proud I am to have been your chairman for the past two years. DCCC and the community that we serve is so rich with amazing people – many of the smartest, friendliest and most inspiring people I know are people I have met through DCCC. Having been given the opportunity to be your steward for a little while has been a fantastically rewarding personal growth experience.

With a new Executive Director and soon a new Chairman, I can’t help to think that it is the beginning of a new era for DCCC.

While it has yet to be decided who will be the next Chairman, it comforts me to know that our board is full of amazingly talented and fiercely passionate people – and I say with all certainty that DCCCs best days are still ahead of us!

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Update From The Royal Danish Consulate

New opening hours for the consular department in Shanghai
Due to the great amount of cases being handled at the consular section of the Consulate General in Shanghai, the opening hours will be reduced.
The opening hours will from now on be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It is recommended to book a time slot in advance in relation to issuing of passport by email til shagkl@um.dk.
In connection with the current huge number of applications for Danish visas, applicants are expected to wait for a longer period of time regarding their visa applications.

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Friends of the Chamber,

Merry Christmas Everyone!

It is the time of the year where we come home to be with family, enjoy good food, and some of that special Danish Hygge!

It is also a good time to reflect on the year that passed, and make plans for the year to come.

2016 in DCCC started with a bang, provided by Mads & Monopolet – a real scoop for DCCC – then continued with lots of great business events. The most popular topic of 2016 was our Mergers & Acquisitions event, which is perhaps telling for what a lot of companies think about these days. We also had new concepts such as the YP CEO Panel which was a great hit, as was the social evening with the Royal Danish Ballet.

Looking into 2017, we are taking inspiration from this great city we live in. Shanghai has been nicknamed The Moving Metropolis, which I find very fitting for a place where the only constant is change.

In 2017 DCCC will focus on how to provide more value and be more relevant to our members by better adapting to the changing environment we live in.

Look forward to announcements early in the new year about new firsts for DCCC and lots of fresh ideas both big and small about how to be a (even) better network for our members in 2017!

Can’t wait? No problem, you can open the first present already now – scroll down and click the link to the new YP Mentor Program to see one of the new and exciting ways DCCC will create value for members in 2017, both the young and the experienced.

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas to you and your loved ones!

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Friends of the Chamber!

Thank you for a great Business Person of the Year Gala Ball! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! (At least there were a lot of party people still going strong when I left at around three in the morning).

We have a lot of great events coming up in November and December, including the always popular Christmas Party. However, in the board we are already looking ahead, and have started planning the program for Spring 2017. We would love to hear from you what kind of topics you would like to see covered in 2017?

I am especially interested to hear from those of you that do not often go to our events. What is your business? What kind of challenges are you facing? How can DCCC be more relevant to you? – Please drop me a line with your comments (emil@businessdeveloper.dk).

At the party last week I had the chance to get great feedback from many of you. One of the things that surprised me was how many people said they would like to be part of organizing the party as a volunteer. Such feedback really warms my heart! At our core we are a member driven organization. As a member of our network you get what you give, and these guys really understood that!

Of course party is not the only thing we do – far from it – and we are always happy to receive help organizing great events in whatever format creates value for our members. So as we are planning for the next year, let me ask you this:

How would you like to contribute to DCCC in 2017?

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Five brands were featured in the two hour long broadcast, among them the Danish companies LEGO, Bestseller and Kjeldsen.
“It is the first time we try to help Danish companies, in this particular way, with their e-commerce activities in China, but we can already see now, that this strategically is a very important project that can contribute great value to the Danish brands and even generate significant instant increases to their online sales,” said Casper Freddie, Team Leader of Team Design in Trade Council China.

The film “Under Sandet”, which emphasizes a dark and forgotten aspect of the Danish post-war history, captured the attention from the attenders and was well-received. After the film screening many attenders took an active part in the Q&A session with several follow up questions regarding the Danish post-war history and culture.

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

 

Dear Friends of the Chamber!

A typhoon is about to land on our great city just in time for the National Day Celebrations! I hope you and your loved ones will be safe – preferably on a beach somewhere far from Shanghai.

We are now just short of a month away from our own celebrations, the DCCC Business Person of the Year Gala Ball, on October 22.

This Monday, I personally went to Kempinski to approve the menu for our ball – It will be a delicious smoked duck breast with butternut squash soup for starter and a succulent beef tenderloin with pumkin napoleon and gingerbread jus for the main.

I make a point of telling you about the menu because that is what you will be paying for when you buy a ticket to the gala. Our party budgeting system is very simple – we pass on the per person food expense from the hotel as the ticket price, everything else is paid by our generous sponsors – this include the band, the MC’s, the entertainment – and yes, the free flow of wine is actually free!

So please give a big hand to our sponsors, who this year have been more generous than ever!

Already more than 120 people have bought tickets, but don’t worry – we have room for you still. Hit the reply button right now and tell us you are coming!

Are you hoping that one day it will be you up there on the stage? Why not take a shortcut and learn from the best. Join our event “My Five Biggest Mistakes and What I Wish I Knew Then” on October 11 with the last year’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Nikolaj Schnoor.

Wish you a great holiday and hope to see you on October 11 and 22!

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Second generation of Danish majors graduate from Beijing Foreign Studies University
Tuesday 28 June, 15 Chinese students at Beijing Foreign Studies University (BFSU) graduated in Danish language studies. The students are the second generation to graduate in Danish studies from BFSU.
The 15 students have studied Danish for four years and have all spent one year in Denmark to improve their language skills. The university began teaching Danish in 2008 and since then, only one class has graduated in Danish language studies before this year’s class. On 28 June, they were congratulated at a big ceremony with more than 1.000 other graduates. The Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing was represented at the ceremony by First Secretary Jacob Bay Lindkvist.
Most of the 15 graduates in Danish language studies have already secured their first jobs in Denmark or in Danish companies in China, e.g. at the Chinese Embassy in Copenhagen and Novozymes in Beijing. Some of the graduates will soon travel to Denmark to continue studies in Denmark’s two largest cities, Copenhagen and Aarhus. The third generation of Danish majors will be enrolled in BFSU this fall. This time the class will consist of 20 students, which is a new record.Danish Foreign Minister participate in biannual ASEM-summit

Update From The Royal Danish Consulate – June 2016

Embassy in Beijing celebrates active and healthy lifestyle for children
On Sunday 22 May, the Royal Danish Embassy in Beijing put focus on a healthy, active and creative lifestyle for children with the event “Happy, Healthy & Creative Children”, which is a part of the branding campaign “Denmark NOW” that presents modern Denmark to China.
“This event promotes the well-being, happiness and health of children. We want to empower children and their parents to share precious moments together today with an emphasis on playing, being active, creating new things and making healthy choices,” said Danish Ambassador to China, A. Carsten Damsgaard, in his opening speech.
More than 600 Chinese families participated on the day and took part in a range of activities hosted by a handful of Danish companies on the embassy grounds. Activities included Novo Nordisk’s “healthy interaction” area, where children put together healthy meals using stickers and paper plates, a bike race with stationary bikes, and an area where children and their parents could measure the amount of sugar in different types of drinks.Consulate General in Chongqing hosts China-Denmark Culture Festival in Guizhou
On Saturday 28 May, The Royal Danish Consulate General in Chongqing hosted a China-Denmark Culture Festival. Consul General Anja Villefrance gave the opening speech at the festival, which was held in Guiyang, located in Guizhou Province in the South of China.
The day included many different activities, including a children’s drawing competition, where the children were asked to touch upon the issues of the Arctic and the environment protection topic in their own way. Furthermore, the festival also included the photo exhibition “Our Arctic Future”.

Consulate General in Shanghai celebrates Children’s Day
On the 1st of June the Consulate General in Shanghai celebrated the International Children’s Day with several activities. Danish Consul General in Shanghai Nicolai Prytz was invited as a keynote speaker at the opening of a H.C. Andersen exhibition in the popular Xintiandi-area in Shanghai. I am happy that Hans Christian Andersen’s stories have found their way into the homes of Chinese citizens and the hearts of Chinese children. This has strengthened the development of the Sino-Danish cultural relations,” said the Consul General.
The Consulate General had also invited Chinese families following the social media accounts of the Danish representations in China to a movie day in the Daning Life Hub Centre in Shanghai. More than 30 Chinese families came to the movie screening where the Danish superhero movie Ant-Boy was shown.

Danish Ambassador gave commencement speech at Sino-Danish Center
Danish Ambassador to China A. Carsten Damsgaard encouraged students to take bold steps in future endeavors in his speech delivered during the graduation ceremony at Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research on Saturday, 25 of June. “I hope you will continue to take bold steps that allow you to embark on new exciting journeys, and hope that you will keep on promoting the unique cooperation and cultural exchange between China and Denmark,” Ambassador Damsgaard said at his commencement speech. This year, the Sino-Danish Center sees the third generation of 150 students get their Master’s degrees from seven programs.

World premiere of Danish actor Ulrich Thomsen’s debut film at Shanghai Film Festival
Danish actor Ulrich Thomsen debuted with his first film as director on June 16th at SFC Shanghai Cinema, where the movie was very well received by the Chinese audience. The film was nominated as one of the films contending for a “Golden Goblet” at this year’s Shanghai International Film Festival.
In connection to this, Ulrich Thomsen and his cast were in Shanghai to represent their movie, which screened at five different venues in the period between the 12th and 18th of June. On Friday June 17th, The Royal Danish Consulate General in Shanghai had invited Chinese media, bloggers, people from the film and television industry and film students for an informal film discussion with Ulrich Thomsen and the cast of “In Embryo”. The evening was initiated by the Consul General introducing the film crew to the 72 attending guests, which lead on to a Q&A session regarding topics, such as what inspired Ulrich Thomsen to become a director, the process of the making of the film and the teamwork between the actors.

Royal Danish Consulate General in Shanghai supports Shanghai Pride Film Festival
Between 18 June and 25 June, the annual Shanghai Pride Film Festival celebrated the lesbian, gay, bi- and transsexual (LGBT) community in Shanghai. The festival was first held in 2009 and was significant because it was the first time a mass LGBT event had taken place in mainland China. This year, the event highlighted the difficult conditions that transgender people face around the world. On Tuesday 21 June, Consul General Nicolai Prytz attended the festival with the Danish-Pakistani film director Mr. Saadat Munir where they both watched the screening of Munir’s award-winning documentary “Chuppan Chupai – Hide and Seek”, which shows the secret, yet open lives of a group of Pakistani sexual minorities, raising questions about the conditions they live under in urban Pakistan.

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Members and Friends of the Chamber!

Summer is upon us, and in a few weeks DCCC will be gearing down for the summer holiday, but until then we still have many offers on the menu, here I would like to mention just three of them.

Firstly, we have taken a long hard look at two old classics, the HR Working Group and the Tax & Law Working Group. Both groups have recently gotten new leadership, and with it we are raising the ambitions of what we hope to achieve. We are aiming to create even more member-to-member interaction and let the groups become a uniquely valuable source of knowledge and inspiration for the relevant staff within our member companies. We know that when it comes to HR and Finance a lot of our members are facing similar challenges. Within these working groups, where meetings are for members only, the participants will gain free access to regulatory updates and key advice from some of the smartest service providers in the business followed by discussion between members on how to deal with many practical daily challenges of running a business in China. We will shortly be contacting each of our corporate members with the opportunity to send key staff to be members of either of these two Working Groups.

Secondly we have a very special event on June 23rd with the Royal Danish Ballet. DCCC has arranged for discounted tickets and an exclusive presentation by the Artistic Director Nikolaj Hübbe. This is a good opportunity to invite your Chinese friends and business partners to share a wonderful and unforgettable evening.

Lastly I would like to mention that preparations are well under way for our Business Person of the Year Gala Ball to be held on October 22nd. This will be the 10th time we celebrate the best achievements within our community and we are taking this anniversary as an excuse to make this party even bigger and even better than anything we have done so far! Do look forward to this amazing party! As always we are relying on the generosity of our sponsor to make the event possible and we will soon be contacting you with information about how you can play a role in supporting this our main event of the year.

Best wishes for the summer,

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Members and Friends of the Chamber!

In our small Chamber we try hard to deliver value to each and every member, by having something for everyone. You see this clearly in the breadth of offerings from DCCC which just in the last month included events such as:

  • A presentation on Challenges and Opportunities for Danish Companies in China by the Danish Ambassador to China A. Carsten Damsgaard,
  • An evening with the Chairwoman of Danes Abroad, discussing the solutions to many common issues faced by Danish Expats,
  • A visit to the Ovodan factory in Suzhou seeing how a Danish company is helping to lead China towards greater food safety and modern hygienic and efficient food production,
  • Beer, Networking and Danish food at the Danish Friday held this time at Brothers Kebab.

In the board and secretariat, we work hard to create great events that are highly relevant and with fantastic speakers, but we need your help! We need you to tell us what topics you are interested in and what kinds of events you would like us to do next.

Our ambition is to be as relevant as possible, and to provide as much value as possible to our members. You vote with your feet when you join one of our events (or not) but we would very much like to also ask you for a bit of verbal feedback by answering three simple questions:

  • What would you like us to do more of?
  • What would you like us to do less?
  • What would you like us to do differently?

Send us your comments either to me (emil@businessdeveloper.dk) or Anneli Vilu our Executive Director (mail@dccc-shanghai.com).

Sincerely,

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Update From The Royal Danish Consulate – April 2016

Consul General Nicolai Prytz attended the opening of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition in Shanghai
On Saturday the 19th of March, Nicolai Prytz – Consul General in Shanghai – gave a speech at the opening of the Danish- Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s first surey exhibition “Nothingness is not nothing at all”, at The Long Museum in Shanghai.
Nicolai Prytz mentioned the positive development in the Sino-Danish relations, in particular over the past decades. The Consul General emphasized: “Focus is often on the very positive progress we have made in the political and economic cooperation between our two countries, but we must not forget to mention our bilateral cooperation in the area of culture, where we have made fantastic progress over the past few years. Just last year we had a Viking exhibition in Suzhou, the Sino-Danish cultural season and the opening of the Danish Cultural Centre in Beijing. The visit by such a distinguished artist as Olafur Eliasson is yet another positive contribution to our bilateral exchange in the cultural area”.
Eliasson’s career-spanning exhibition is open to the public during the period March 20th to June 19th 2016 at Long Museum.Trade between Denmark and China hits a historical high in 2015
Bilateral trade between Denmark and China further rose to 116.6 billion Danish kroner (114.6 billion yuan) in 2015. Danish exports of green technologies, health, fashion and design products are the highlight.
Trade in goods and services between Denmark and China reached an all-time high of 116.6 billion Danish kroner (114.6 billion yuan) in 2015, registering a year-on-year increase of six percent, shows the latest figures by Denmark’s official Statistics Bureau.
The Danish exports to China have nearly been tripled in the past decade, to 59.2 billion Danish kroner in 2015. A record 22.1 percent increase was witnessed in Danish exports of goods, to 35.8 billion kroner.
“Denmark is ready to adjust to a new Chinese model based on more sustainable and consumer driven growth. This means that there will be an increase in demand for green technologies, food safety, high-class fashion and design, as well as advanced health and pharmaceuticals products, sectors where Danish companies are world leaders,” says A. Carsten Damsgaard, Danish Ambassador to China.

Denmark opens new Visa Application Centers in five Chinese cities
The new Visa Application Centers are located in Nanjing, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Shenyang.
The five centers, adding to the four existing ones in Beijing, Chongqing, Guangzhou and Shanghai, highlight Denmark’s continuous effort to facilitate travel by a growing number of Chinese citizens.
“I am very pleased to see these new Visa Centers open their doors in the five provinces with a total population of as big as 357 million,” said A. Carsten Damsgaard, Danish Ambassador to China.
Applications for both short-term visa and long-term residence permit can be handed over to these nine centers across the country. The visa procedure takes approximately five to 11 working days.
Please find below the addresses and contacts of these new centers.

The Royal Danish General Consulate in Guangzhou made sure that a special Danish touch was added to the Shenzhen Creative Week 2016
From the 19th to the 22nd of March the “Danish Design Fair” pavilion was open to potential customers, distributors and other visitors during the Shenzhen Creative Week 2016. It provided Chinese visitors with the opportunity to see what the Danish furniture and design scene has to offer.
The “Danish Design Fair” was arranged in collaboration between the Danish Consulate General in Guangzhou and the Chinese design company Mexarts. It included a number of prominent Danish brands and displayed both classic and brand new design products. Among the Danish participants were Jacob Jensen, Linie Design, Onecollection, Verpan and a number of other modern design brands.Consulate General in Shanghai hosts Danish pavilion at annual High-End Hi-Fi event
The Shanghai International High-End Hi-Fi Show was held from the 8th-10th of April.
This year the Royal Danish Consulate General in Shanghai hosted a Danish Pavilion at the show, where four Danish companies were present. The three-day exhibition took place in the Okura Garden Hotel Shanghai, located in the heart of Shanghai’s former French concession.
The Danish Consul General of Shanghai, Nicolai Prytz, gave a speech at the opening ceremony, where he expressed the great satisfaction regarding the co-operation with the companies to make the Danish Pavilion a reality this year, as well as his admiration for the products they presented.
The feedback on the pavilion was generally very positive with many interested Hi-Fi enthusiasts visiting the pavilion. These enthusiasts got to enjoy a live music show, which the Danish Pavilion had arranged for the event, where two Danish students from Odense music school and five Chinese students from Shanghai music conservatory entertained with classical vibes.

Chinese State Counsellor Yang Jiechi warmly received in Copenhagen
On Sunday 17 April, he was received in audience by Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II at Fredensborg Castle.
The same day Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen met with the State Counsellor. This was only 2½ weeks after Prime Minister Rasmussen met with President Xi Jinping in Washington DC, and this sequence of high-level contacts is a testament to the importance of the bilateral Danish-Chinese relationship.
A meeting between Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen and the State Counsellor was held on Saturday 16 April to discuss the partnership between Denmark and China, human rights, the regional situation in Asia as well as the development in Ukraine, Syria and Afghanistan.
Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen emphasized the strong ties between Denmark and China, and noted the potential for future collaboration between the two countries.
“China was one of the first countries I visited as new Foreign Minister, and State Counsellor Yang’s visit in Copenhagen is another strong testimony of the good and close collaboration between Denmark and China. We must continue to build and develop this collaboration, which is why we have taken stock on our strategic partnership from 2008 today. We have discussed how to work even closer within the areas of energy, innovation and food safety, where Danish companies and authorities have expertise, which is sought after by Chinese parties,” Minister Kristian Jensen said, and continued:
“Naturally, we discussed the development in Syria, North Korea and Afghanistan, for instance, and we have had an honest dialogue on the development in China, including human rights. Our meeting confirmed that Denmark and China have a special relationship and I will work actively to build on our common interests.”

Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

 

Dear Members and Friends of the Chamber!

At the AGM held last week, I was honored to be elected Chairman of DCCC Shanghai for a second term. I would like to thank all of you for your trust in me and I promise to do my very best to make 2016 another fantastic year for DCCC.

More importantly, our board got some fresh new power from the election of Christy Chen Moeller, Gitte Soee Pedersen and Kjeld Staerk. We are very excited to have these talented people join our board!

Unfortunately, we also had to say goodbye to a few members who for various reasons decided to leave our board and in two cases even leave our great city. That was Christian Overgaard, Francis Hoang and Peter Kiaer. I would like to sincerely thank all three for their great contributions to DCCC. Big positive marks have been left behind by all three and we really appreciate it!

Not sure what an AGM is and what the board does in DCCC? Fear not, here is the simple explanation.

As a member of DCCC, you are actually an “Owner” of our organization with the right to nominate and vote for someone to represent you at the Board of Directors. This is done once a year in March at the Annual General Meeting (or AGM for short).

The board meets once a month with their primary responsibility being to plan new events and use their network to reach out to great speakers. The board members volunteer their time and none of them (including yours truly) are paid to be on the board.

The board are also responsible to oversee the work of our Secretariat consisting of our Executive Director Anneli Vilu and our Event Manager Laura Li. The secretariat is working full time day and sometimes night to make sure that DCCC has the best events and taking care of all the practical details of running the chamber and for that they do get paid a modest sum.

All so that you our Members can enjoy great events and access to knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. When you join an event you become our “Customer”.

So as a member of DCCC you are both the Owner and the Customer – that is why we say “DCCC is for the Members by the Members”.

In 2015, DCCC held 65 events with a total of 1984 participants. This is really quite a lot if you start to think about it. In fact, it is a lot more than what many of our colleagues in other Chambers of Commerce in Shanghai are doing and it is really only possible due to the great volunteer effort put in by our board, by our sponsors, and by other members who now and then step in to lend a hand. Seeing this amazing unification around a shared purpose is really inspiring and it is the reason why I am so proud to be your chairman!

Being for the Members by the Members also mean we will continue to measure ourselves not by the profit we generate but by the value we provide to our members. By that yards stick 2015 was a good year for DCCC, we believe we can do even better in 2016.

Sincerely,

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter
