About us and our mission

We at Chinahub reject any type of separation because we think that global free-trade was a main reason why billions of people were shifted out of poverty.

Free trade allowed many countries – and among them China by way of example – lift their citizens out of poverty. However, today we are experiencing a time where more and more self-proclaimed Western countries choose isolation over global collaboration. 

So why does it sound strange when China became liberal from some perspectives by initiating the belt and road initative?

In 2013 the Chinese president Xi Jinping announced the One Belt, One Road initative which is an infrastructure and investment project amounting to US$4–8 trillion covering more than 68 countries and 65% of the world population.

We at CHINAHUB truly believe that a closer collaboration between European and Asian countries will lift additional millions of people out of poverty while promoting millions of people into the middle-class.

We see the Chinese consumer and therefore the Chinese market as a key component in this equation. Opening and simplifying the Chinese market to millions of European and Central Asian citizens will result in an unimaginable increase in purchasing power for them.

We are here to assist European and Central Asian entrepreneurs to, first of all, understand the Chinese market and then expand to the new land of opportunity: China.
