Welcome to and greeting from Mr. Søren Bindesboll - New Consul General in Guangzhou
Welcome to and greeting from Mr.  Søren Bindesboll - New Consul General in Guangzhou
The Danish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong welcomes the new consul general in Guangzhou. As soon as the boundary is open, we will arrange for our members to meet Soren.

Søren has for this newsletter sent a greeting:

”Mit navn er Søren Bindesbøll, og jeg er siden 1. august ny generalkonsul i Guangzhou og Sydkina.
Det er ikke første gang jeg er i Kina. Jeg arbejdede i 2010 til 2014 på ambassaden i Beijing i den økonomisk-sektorpolitiske afdeling, og beskæftigede mig der med den økonomiske udvikling, den grønne dagsorden, forskning og uddannelse. Jeg var der med til at videreudvikle partnerskabet med Kina og udbrede samarbejdet til mange nye områder. Vi blev i de år hjulpet på vej af talrige ministerbesøg og to statsbesøg. Siden var jeg i fem år ansvarlig for de politiske bilaterale relationer til Kina og Nordøstasien på Asiatisk Plads i Udenrigsministeriet indtil jeg i 2019 blev udsendt som souschef til ambassaden i Indonesien. Jeg er glad for at være tilbage i Kina – denne gang med min hustru og to børn.

I al min tid med arbejdet med Kina og Asien har fremme af dansk erhvervslivs interesser og kontakten til danske virksomheder stået helt centralt. Selvom verden er under hastig forandring i disse år, vil Kina også fremover stå helt centralt i den globale orden og på verdensmarkedet. I en forandret situation, hvor distancen til Kina måske synes større end i mange år, stilles der krav om at bedre forstå landet, markedet og vilkårene, samt at kende både muligheder og risici bedst muligt. Jeg ved, at DCCC spiller en central rolle i denne forståelse, og jeg glæder mig til at medvirke hertil og fortsætte samspillet med DCCC og dansk erhvervsliv i min nye rolle. Ikke mindst glæder jeg mig til at lære jer alle at kende, og til at møde jer så snart som muligt.
Bh Søren"
