Joint chamber automotive breakfast

April 2016, Beijing 

By invitation only

After years of explosive growth, OEMs and car dealers have come under pressure amid a slowing economy, stock market crisis, and widening graft probe, all which contributed to broadly weakening demand in China's car market. As a result, vehicle inventories are at record highs while liquidity is at record lows. To exacerbate matters, overabundance of full-service 4s dealerships have led to significant inefficiencies and intra-brand competition. Disruptors such as online car dealers further threat the traditional business model.

Despite the market challenges, most OEMs and dealer groups recognize the urgency of pressing on the offense by expanding into lower-tier cities and capturing market share in the first- and second-tier battleground cities. Additionally, as profitability of new vehicle sales decline, carmakers and their retailers must transform to focus more on after-sales services and used-car sales. Finally, current retail formats in the digital age will need to be addressed. During China's "new normal", car companies must address current realities by transforming their business models. 

As a result, the European Chamber of Commerce (EUCCC), German Chamber of Commerce (AHK), and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) proudly co-host this special event which takes a deep dive on understanding current challenges and how car companies can transform and adjust in the digital age and China's "new normal".
