So I’m back to the city to find out who else had a say. What about the foreign investors? I’m off to the EU Chamber of Commerce.

Adam Dunnett, General Manager, European Union Chamber of Commerce in China

Verity: Adam, could you tell us a little bit about the role that European Chamber of Commerce or even yourself in the consultation process for , the 12th 5-year Plan, what role did you play?

Adam Dunnett: Well, the EU Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit membership based lobby organization. So the 5-year Plan is something that is very much of interest to our members because the 5-year plan, in itself, is something that is used later for developing other legislation, rules, regulations that will affect our members and in the sectors in which they operate.

And then in November, the NDRC posted on the website a public call for comments. That’s the way this sort of thing is often done for other laws and regulations. And in it, it specifically said that foreign invested enterprises were encouraged to provide comments.

So although it did not provide an actual draft to comment on, what they did do is  give us  three areas where were looking for suggestions. So the first was able to give the examples of policies and activities that took place in 11th five year plan that companies or foreign invested enterprises thought were successful. That was, that was the first area. And the second was asking for comments on general social and economic reform that could take place in the12th five year plan. And the third category was asking for specific concrete measures that could take place in specific sectors as well.
