Event Details

In November millions of Americans will go to the polls to determine the makeup of the presidency, Congress, and local governments. China has in recent years played an outsized role in US foreign policymaking, and while the style and tenor may change depending on the election outcome, managing the bilateral relationship will continue to be a top priority for Washington regardless of the outcome of the election.


AmCham Shanghai is pleased to welcome Dr. Scott Kennedy, Senior Adviser and Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies for a webinar on how the 2020 Elections will shape US-China relations. Dr. Kennedy will give an overview of where US-China relations currently stand and what impact the outcome of the elections may have going forward.
