About  the WCEC

The World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC) was first conceptualised and organised by the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCCI) in 1991 to provide an apolitical forum to enhance economic cooperation and promote understanding amongst Chinese entrepreneurs worldwide. 


In 1991, the SCCCI, The Chinese General Chamber of Commerce of Hong Kong and the Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce formed the Founder Members Board to ensure the continuity of the WCEC. Subsequently, the WCEC Secretariat was set up to operate as the central liaison point and coordinating centre for matters relating to the WCEC; it liaises with the host organisation of each WCEC in ensuring the smooth organisation of the Convention. The WCEC Secretariat is rotated amongst the three Founder Members with each operating on a 6-year term. The SCCCI hosts the current WCEC Secretariat.


Special  Announcement

In view of the global COVID-19 pandemic affecting the daily operations of many organisations, the WCEC Founder Members decided to extend the application deadline for hosting the 17th WCEC by another 6 months, until 31st December 2020. The terms and conditions governing the application for hosting the World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention, preparation guidelines and evaluation criteria on the eligibility of the application organisations, remain unchanged.
