"The CCPIT's mission, is to provide a professional and social environment for business people who wish to be introduced to, and become a part of, the Sino-international business and culture community. By providing relevant business networking opportunities and encouraging dialogue between members, we seek to create a community of peers where actively participating individuals - enabled by the CCPIT - are inspired and supported by the larger community."[citation needed]


The Chamber’s services have three main functions:

  • To create a forum for social and professional networking for CCPIT members. Members regard this function as an excellent opportunity to increase their client base and share experiences among fellow members.
  • To act as a channel between members and the Chinese authorities on particular topics of special interest to the members.
  • To participate in the debate regarding trade and policy issues, which are of concern to CCPIT members. Most activities focus on members' meetings and Chamber seminars either in the form of evening presentations or business lunches.
