Report on CEWP Business Pillar activities 2013

This short report summarises the objectives and planned activities for the CEWP Business pillar as set out in the Terms of reference for the year and the outcomes of those activities with suggestions for next steps.

The purpose of the CEWP Business Pillar is to assist China in the delivery of its planned water infrastructure investment and water sector reform programme and to assist European business to become a part of this process. A programme of activities was undertaken over the first year of the Business pillar to better understand the opportunities, the barriers and how EU and Chinese businesses and government can work together.
