bilateral dynamic

Dear CGCC Members and Friends,
CGCC and CGCC Foundation cordially invite you to attend our 2020 Annual Business Survey Report Launch webinar, “Perspectives on the U.S.-China Bilateral Dynamic and Its Impact on Business, Trade & Investment,” taking place on Wednesday, August 12th.
It’s the seventh consecutive year that CGCC and CGCC Foundation conducts the Annual Business Survey on Chinese Enterprises in the United States. This year, the survey report focuses on the overview of current business and market environment in the U.S., Chinese localized business management, and how Chinese companies responded strategically to the ongoing uncertainties. The survey also underscores the necessity for maintaining a robust bilateral relationship between the U.S. and China for global economic stability.
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 12th, 2:00pm – 3:15pm EST
Location: Online
CLICK HERE to RSVP
Please save the confirmation email with your unique zoom link for future participation.
What motivates Chinese companies to invest in the United States? Are supply chains and technology the main drivers for investing? Further, how are Chinese companies navigating the U.S.-China relationship in the middle of historic diplomatic and trade rows? The report sheds light on these issues, among others. Please join us for an insightful conversation with prominent members of the U.S.-China business community who will speak to the findings of the survey as well as share their perspectives on current U.S.-China relations and the impact on commercial investment, business retention and expansion, and international trade.
We look forward to your participation!

CGCC successfully hosted, “Leadership Story Time: Business Continuity and CSR Best Practices during COVID-19,” Webinar

7.31 newsletter webinar image

On July 27th, 2020, nearly 100 community and business leaders across the United States joined the latest installment of the CGCC E-Connects Series – a webinar titled, “Leadership Story Time: Business Continuity and CSR Best Practices during COVID-19.”
The webinar convened a panel of distinguished business executives from leading Chinese companies from the Life Sciences, Telecommunications, Manufacturing, Finance and Construction sectors, operating in the United States, to share best practices on how to be a responsible corporate citizen during COVID-19.
Panelists discussed how their companies responded to the virus during the early months of 2020, and what measures are now being taken to keep business operational, employees safe, and communities supported. Panelists answered questions about their long-term plans for business continuity and CSR to which all agreed CSR has taken a priority in their business objectives moving forward. Working together with U.S. stakeholders in the fight against COVID-19 was the prevailing consensus.
Since March 12th, CGCC and CGCC Foundation, together with its regional chapters and member companies, including those companies represented in the July 27th webinar, have donated more than 3.8 million pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to more than 50 U.S. hospitals and clinics and 20 government agencies in 20 states across America.
The panel discussion was moderated by Ernst & Young Partner Shau Zhang, and included International Vitamin Corporation (IVC) Senior Vice President Veena Chillar, China Telecom (Americas) Vice President Luis Fiallo, CRRC Sifang America Vice President Haitao Qu, Bank of China U.S.A. Chief Communications Officer Peter Reisman and Sany America General Manager Mengtao Xie.
