On Thursday 6 October 2015, CHINALUX members had a joyful evening with the Chinese Ambassador to Luxembourg, Mr. Huang Changqing at House 17. This member-exclusive cocktail event started with a welcome speech by the CHINALUX President Dirk Dewitte, who expressed a warm welcome to Ambassador Huang and looked forward to future cooperation with the Chinese Embassy to promote China-Luxembourg relations. Ambassador Huang in turn thanked CHINALUX for its work bridging China and Luxembourg. He further highlighted how he is looking forward to working in and with Luxembourg, and to meeting all CHINALUX members. The evening finished with a networking cocktail dinner, in which our members enjoyed the wine and the privilege to interact with the Ambassador in a friendly atmosphere.

On Tuesday 20 October 2015 CHINALUX, together with fellow Business Chambers and Chambers of Commerce in Luxembourg representing the BRIC countries - Brazil, Russia and India - held a collaborative event at Utopolis-Kirchberg that attracted 340 attendees. The event featured a panel discussion and the projection of a film exploring the topic "Bringing BRIC Business Together in Luxembourg". The evening finished off with a walking dinner, with food from the four countries, as well as the usual and friendly networking session. Given the success of the event, CHINALUX with the other chambers, are considering hosting events under the BRIC flag in the future.

LuxReal FORUM ChinaLux

On 26 October 2015, LuxReal and CHINALUX organised the first Real Estate Forum with a main focus on China hosted at Deloitte Luxembourg. The Forum was an opportunity for the many participants to learn more about Chinese outbound and inbound into the real estate asset class.

After a short introduction by Vincent Bechet, LuxReal President, and Dirk Dewitte, CHINALUX President, Laurent Cooreman, CEO at CBRE Luxembourg, outlined the type of real estate assets that have been acquired in Europe over the past year by Chinese investors, as well as the other direction - the types of Chinese real estate acquired by foreign investors during the same period.

Danny Po, Partner at Deloitte China, explained the considerations driving Chinese investors to invest overseas and in the real estate asset class and similarly those for foreign investors to invest in Chinese real estate.

This was followed by discussions in a panel format moderated by Sven Rein (LuxReal) together with Augustine Chin (Diener Syz Real Estate), Eric Zhibin Xie (Bank of China) and the two speakers.

The Forum ended with a cocktail allowing the participants to mingle and exchange their experience and view on the discussed topics.

CHINALUX President Dirk Dewitte keynoted the event and talked about the business and cultural ties between Luxembourg and China, including those of Huawei's presence in Luxembourg.
