Amcham-China Unveils Annual Business Climate Survey
For those of you who are in Beijing, you can come see me speak as a panelist Friday morning at the unveiling of the American Chamber of Commerce in China (Amcham-China)’s annual Business Climate Survey for 2010. The event includes a review of key findings from the survey, which was conducted among AmCham-China members and provides a snapshot of the overall business landscape regarding competition, regulatory environment, investment, labor and other key factors.
I’m the co-chair of Amcham-China’s Public Policy Development Committee, and played a role in designing and evaluating the survey, so in a sense I’ll be wearing that hat along with my academic one. The panel will also include Ted Dean, the president of BDA China, and Christoph Nettleshiem, a senior partner with Boston Consulting Group, and will be moderated by the New Yorker‘s resident Beijing correspondent (and fellow China blogger) Evan Osnos. We’ll discuss the survey results and the current state of American business in China amid growing trade and other tensions between the two countries.
The session will be open to questions from both the audience and the press, and given recent controversies, it may touch on some pretty lively topics. Non-members of Amcham-China are welcome, although there is a fee to attend. There will be simultaneously translation into Chinese available.
The event will take place from 9:30am to 11:30am on Friday, April 2, at the Peninsula Hotel Beijing (in Wangfujing). Details and registration can be found by clicking here.
