Despite beginning the year on a high note, US and China had a frosty 2020. Technology decoupling, trade tensions, human rights and diplomatic issues, and sharpened rhetoric around COVID all contributed to a downturn in relations. Many now wonder what tack the Biden administration will take. Will Beijing and Washington forge avenues of cooperation? Which Trump policies will be maintained? It seems clear that neither a continuation of 2020 nor a return to pre-Trumpian China policy is tenable, so what will the new relationship look like?
AmCham Shanghai and the US-China Business Council are pleased to present a joint breakfast session at The Sukhothai on the Biden administration's China policy. AmCham Shanghai President Ker Gibbs and USCBC Vice President Matt Margulies will both present opening remarks, and then sit on a panel with Mattie Bekink, China Director, Economist Corporate Network, and Haiqing Lu, Chief Corporate Affairs & Strategic Relations Officer, IHG Greater China.
This session will cover:
- Washington's view of China policy, including avenues for cooperation and competition
- How American companies on the ground view the relationship
- Economic and business relations between the two countries
A full breakfast buffet will be served. This session is off the record.
