Chairman’s Corner – Emil Hauch Jensen

Dear Friends of the Chamber!

Last Saturday we had our annual gala ball and what a party it was! We had a record setting 215 participants at the party and the evening was packed with entertainment and celebration including some unannounced surprises, such as a visit by the Danish band Basix and for the first time ever an award for Lifetime Achievement.

I would like to thank everyone who was there! You were all a part of making this an unforgettable evening.

If you missed the big party, or if you were one of the many who thought the party ended too early (the bar closed at 04:00!), then the good news is that you do not need to wait long for the next party! Our DCCC-YP Christmas party is right around the corner. This year, our friends from EQ are serving up a traditional Danish Christmas Buffet at their newly opened Nanjing Road location.

In the meantime, we in DCCC Shanghai will continue to serve you a fresh selection of business and networking events and we still have a great program lined up for you for the rest of 2015.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your membership, and wish you will take full advantage of the opportunities it provides!

Emil Hauch Jensen
Chairman of the Board, DCCC Shanghai Chapter

Update From The Royal Danish Consulate

Danish Foreign Minister broaden bilateral cooperation with China
Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen concluded a three-day visit to China on 27th of October.
During the visit the Foreign Minister signed the Articles of the Agreement the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), consolidating Denmark’s role as a founding member in this new institution.
“It is a significant and exciting development that China has taken the initiative to establish the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank,” says Danish Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen. “Denmark supports infrastructure development in Asia. Whereas Danish trade interests as well as development cooperation interests will be at stake in this institution, there are many reasons for us to engage in and influence the bank’s investment decisions from its beginning.”
During the visit, Foreign Minister Jensen was received by Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi at the Great Hall of the People, to whom the Minister showed great interests in the “One Belt One Road” initiative and China’s upcoming 13th Five-Year Plan. The Minister was also received by his counterpart Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi – the two sides exchanged their opinions on a broad variety of topics from the celebrations of the 65th anniversary of the diplomatic relations and further bilateral cooperation to international flash points such as Syria and Ukraine.

Har du husket at registrere dig på Udenrigsministeriets danskerliste?

Hvad er danskerlisten?
Danskerlisten giver Udenrigsministeriet mulighed for at kontakte danskere i udlandet i en krisesituation. Det kan være ved naturkatastrofer, terroraktioner eller væbnet konflikt i det land, du opholder dig i. I den slags situationer kan det være nyttigt for dig at få information om en sikker og hurtig måde at forlade området på.
Det er frivilligt, om man som dansker ønsker at registrere sig.
Danskerlisten kan bruges ved både korte rejser og længerevarende ophold i udlandet. Det nye system minder automatisk brugeren om at opdatere sine oplysninger senest 12 måneder efter sidste logon.
