World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC)

Since the end of the 19th century, there had been a widespread emigration of Chinese people. Now they can be found almost all over the world. Most of them had developed small enterprise businesses in their country of settlement. Some of these businesses were being expanded or diversified, while some were turned into business kingdoms with multinational interests including investments.

Although Chinese entrepreneurs are well-known for being hard-working and energetic, there had never been an attempt to bring them together under one roof. The World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) was first conceptualized and organized by the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry to provide a forum for overseas Chinese entrepreneurs to enhance economic cooperation and promote better understanding among overseas Chinese entrepreneurs and business communities worldwide. Being apolitical in nature, its mission is to focus on economic and cultural issues pertaining to Chinese entrepreneurship.

The potential generated by such convention is boundless. It can be very enlightening particularly for the Asian Pacific Region. It is an important channel to build up economic relationship and consolidate network of world Chinese entrepreneurs with the ultimate goal of establishing a business cooperation network.
