  • To organise, activate, motivate, promote and support China-Luxembourg-related trade initiatives and events - such as meetings, workshops and conferences - in order to capture long term opportunities, with a regular focus on areas of mutual interest to accelerate these opportunities; 

  • To build a knowledge base for CHINALUX Members containing useful information regarding economic missions, contact persons with access to China, service propositions, brochures, etc.; 

  • To provide members with assistance in contacting official bodies in China, Luxembourg and other countries, as well as international or national organisations in respect of Chinese inbound and outbound activities.
