US-China Relations: What Businesses Need to Know webinar

Zoom webinar

Thursday, February 18, 2021.  12:00PM - 1:00PM  Presented via Zoom.

The Illinois SBDC International Trade Center is pleased to announce that they are partnering with the President of the US-China Business Council (USCBC), Ambassador Craig B. Allen in offering:  US-China Relation:  What Businesses Need to Know

This webinar will benefit anyone with an interest in the U.S.’ global role in policy, commerce and trade and how it is increasingly being defined by our relationship with China.  Moreover, as the U.S. and China experience a rapid shift in how trade is pursued, it is important that anyone engaged in business with China is aware of the larger context that is driving this sea change, so they are able to take an informed long-view in formulating business strategy with this important partner and rival.  Ambassador Allen will cover key topics:

  • provide background on the trade tensions between China and the U.S. that have escalated into disputes in areas, such as technology and finance.
  • the Ambassador will outline what every business needs to know to plan for the future in this rapidly evolving environment and how U.S. businesses are working to shape the future of the relationship between the U.S. and China.
  • importers and exporters benefit from a thoughtful, informed approach to our strategic relationship with China.
  • we will explore how current tensions will likely play out into the next Administration and how more extreme outcomes, such as decoupling and tariff conflicts, complicate business here and our competitiveness abroad
