    Overview

    The Business at OECD (BIAC) China Expert Group contributes expert guidance to China–OECD cooperation in areas that improve trade and investment conditions, as well as the overall business environment in China. Taking into account OECD members’ relations with China as a cooperation partner, economic competitor and systemic rival, the group encourages a mutually beneficial relationship – recognizing that differentiated approaches may be necessary to effectively progress towards concrete results. Our expert group consults at least annually with the OECD Ambassador-led Informal Reflection Group on China, and it organizes and contributes to thematic ad-hoc sessions with delegations and the OECD. We also work closely with the OECD’s senior representative in Beijing to strengthen the OECD’s presence in China.

    Business engagement at OECD

    Representing like-minded market-based democracies, the OECD Council at Ministerial level adopted a resolution in 2007 to strengthen the co-operation with China as a ‘key partner’ through a program of enhanced engagement. Based on the common interest of its member countries, the OECD advances policy dialogue with China in selected areas, promotes convergence of China’s policies, regulations and guidelines towards OECD standards. The OECD further seeks China’s gradual progress towards selected OECD legal instruments. Strategic discussions are also being held among OECD member governments with a focus toward enhancing China’s commitment in common priority areas.
     
    The Expert Group supports the following OECD bodies in this context:
    • OECD Informal Reflection Group on China
    • Senior OECD Representative in China
