At the meeting, what did the guests like about China’s economic recovery? How will the increased tension between the United States and China affect corporate recovery? How can companies avoid difficulties? What measures has the government taken to encourage businesses and help them overcome their issues? Is it a good opportunity for US companies to invest in China? Discussions on the topics such as whether China’s investment opportunities are worth the risks were highly appreciated by the participants, and caused a heated discussion among the audience.
Behind the complicated relationship between China and the United States is also a critical period for the integration and optimization of industry. Although the difficulties faced by multinational businesses continue to intensify, the long-term prospects of the business between China and the US is still very high. As the two superpowers in the world, China and the United States should “cooperate for mutual benefits, while avoiding conflicts”. Win-win cooperation is an urgent requirement of the peoples of the two countries.We would like to look forward to it together, and we especially look forward to seeing how the Sino-US relations after the changes due to the current situation have passed and how the rebirth will usher in the glory after suffering.
