Bird & Bird in association with the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China and the China Legal Counsel Alliance has the pleasure of inviting you to this year's “China Automotive” events.

In view of the significant interest in the China Automotive conferences that we organised in Shanghai in 2015 and 2016, we have decided to expand our offering. This year we will hold a series of three events:

This year's China Automotive conferences will focus on the following areas:

  • Access to Repair & Maintenance Information (RMI)
  • Latest Developments Regarding Competition Rules for the Independent Aftermarket
  • Automotive Product Recalls and Field Actions
  • Data Protection and Cyber-Security in the Automotive Sector
  • From driver assistance systems to autonomous driving: contractual risk allocation in the supply chain.
