Dear Members, Partners and Friends,

During the current tough circumstances we hope that everyone remains healthy and safe. You are for sure already checking regularly the websites of your respective consulates to stay up to date on the latest developments of the virus and its management:

Consular websites of the Benelux:
Belgium (FR)
Belgium (NL)
The Netherlands

And the website of Shanghai Municipal Government for more information.

As the course of the Coronavirus spread is unpredictable, business may be affected negatively at different levels. Even though some damages may be redeemed via Force Majeur clauses, the overall aim of businesses in China and beyond is to limit negative business impact as much as possible.

To help our Benelux businesses with navigating the crisis, a group of experienced business advisors from our community have volunteered to form a Coronavirus Expert Panel. This panel advises the Members of BenCham Shanghai on potential business risks and mitigating actions, and includes experts in fields of legal, biological crisis management, finance and investment, fiscal, HR, social, governmental, etc. Below you will find the composition of the Shanghai Experts Panel. In the coming days, BenCham team will share with you the views and advice of the Panel.
