U.S.-China business outlook for 2022 and beyond
At this event, join Craig Allen, President of the USCBC, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing over 200 American companies and Christopher Marquis, Cornell professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast for an in-depth discussion of the just-released US-China Business Council (USCBC) member survey.
Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic and continued rocky trade relations have created uncertainty for US companies doing business with China. How are US companies viewing the short and long-term outlook for China relations and trade and commercial opportunities? Furthermore, with the recent CPC Centennial and President Xi’s strident tones, can business continue to be ballast for the relationship between the two countries? For an in-depth discussion of these issues based on the just-released US-China Business Council (USCBC) member survey, join Craig Allen, President of the USCBC, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing over 200 American companies and Christopher Marquis, Cornell professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast. They will discuss these issues in a live CEO Webinar discussion on August 12 at 1pm EDT.
