“Sharing Is Caring": the New Webinar Series from CICC MEWG

The Mechanical Engineering Working Group (MEWG) of the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce (CICC) is working on a webinar series on different topics called "Sharing is caring: Issues for the MEWG in China", aimed at overcoming the current market difficulties due to the recent COVID restrictions.

The main objective of the webinar series is to share the experiences of companies belonging to the Mechanical Engineering Working Group operating in China, which we have divided into 7 major macro sectors:

• Components

• Machinery

• Industrial Services

• Automotive

• Manufacturing

• Electronics

• Home Applications


Sharing one's difficulties, experiences and business sentiment can also inspire other companies or be a good opportunity to receive support. The main issues and common discussion topics that we have identified are:

• Reopening of activities

• Supply Chain

• Incentives

• Block of production

• Logistic

• HR



The first webtalk will debut on May 12th, 2022 at 11:00 (Beijing time). The Mechanical Engineering Working Group will invite company executives operating in the components sector to discuss the current situation and its effects on current business affairs, focusing on the restart after the lockdown.

In this exclusive 1-hour virtual exchange, high-level executives will share their own experiences and provide insights into topics such as:


What is their company's current situation?

Talking about the reopening of the production plants, what obstacles are those companies currently facing and how can they overcome them?

What are the short- and medium-term implications?

What best-practice advice can you share? On what topics do you require advice or assistance?
