How the sobering state of U.S.-China relations affects U.S. businesses
Join Christopher Marquis, Cambridge professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast on March 9, 2022, for a live Webinar discussion with Craig Allen, President of the US-China Business Council as they discuss and answer your questions about the current state of US-China relations and how it will affect business.
While many anticipated US-China relations would improve under the Biden Administration, that has not been the case. From the diplomatic boycott of the Olympics, difficulty getting China to adhere to the Phase 1 Trade agreement and increasing calls for decoupling, how should business view its future prospects in the world’s second largest economy? If you are interested in these topics, then join Christopher Marquis, Cambridge professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast on March 9, 2022, for a live Webinar discussion with Craig Allen, President of the US-China Business Council. They will overview the current state of US-China relations and what’s to come in areas such as US legislation to bolster competitiveness in key industries, the lasting effects of covid, what potential decoupling scenarios may bring for US business and more.
