On March 12th, AmCham's Manufacturing Business Council will host the 2021 China Manufacturing Forecast. We'll begin with a macro view of the global and China economies. Then we'll zoom in on the manufacturing sector in China to discuss the trends and outside influences that operations professionals need to know to guide their business through the year. Following the experts' presentations will be a panel discussion to discuss best practices for scenario planning in uncertain times. We hope you'll join for a comprehensive look at the indicators affecting business and for practical sharing on how to prepare for another challenging year.
