China CEO Interview Series, Episode 2

The spread of the coronavirus is drastically changing how businesses operate. China-based CEOs were the first to encounter many of these changes and have had to come up with strategies for fractured supply chains, government ordered lockdowns, and changing consumer demands. AmCham Shanghai presents a series of in-depth interviews with CEOs in China on their advice for companies managing through these extraordinary times.

The second webinar will focus on financial issues connected to operating businesses during the pandemic. It features interviews with Han Lin, SVP & Deputy General Manager at Wells Fargo, and Todd Wilcox, Senior Executive Vice President and Deputy CEO of HSBC. They will discuss the financial options for companies and what are some common mistakes companies make at this time. The webinar will take place on 9 AM April 13th Shanghai time / 6 PM April 12th Pacific Standard Time.
