Thanks to a healthy post-outbreak recovery beginning in April, China's overall auto sales declined only 2% in 2020, with commercial vehicle sales setting an all-time annual sales record. Entering 2021, China remains the global leader in new car sales, with particularly strong growth in new energy vehicle (NEV) sales. As NEV propulsion systems become more common, so too do new smart connected and self-driving features, with such technologies commercializing faster in China than in other markets.

AmCham Shanghai's Automotive Committee invites you to our Look Back, Look Ahead event on February 3rd from 8:30 am to 10:30 am at the AmCham Xintiandi Conference center. In this session, our expert speakers will review the 2020 market rebound, discuss the new technologies and policies shaping the future of the automotive industry. The concluding panel discussion will summarize the trends shaping the global industry as we emerge into a exciting new era in 2021 and beyond.

Visiting Notes:

For the next few weeks, visitors to AmCham Shanghai's office may be asked to show an additional health code "information big data travel card" (通信大数据行程卡) when entering Infinitus Tower. This code can be downloaded in the building lobby. Due to the new procedures, entry to the building may take an extra minute.
