On the afternoon of June 30, 2022, EST, more than 200 Chinese and American businessmen gathered in Washington, D.C., to have a constructive discussion on the importance of Chinese investment in the United States at the “Invest in America Reception.” The entire dialogue was hosted by CGCC Chicago, and the last part was hosted exclusively by Pin Ni. The guest speakers all provided professional insights and practical solutions from an industry perspective for the sustainable development of Sino-US trade, which is significant to the sound development of Sino-US relations. The seminar ended with a lively discussion on the latest Sino-US trade policies and challenges in international resource allocation.
“CGCC officially started ‘Select USAReception’ 11 years ago. I remember I was invited here too to give the speech. Obviously, in the last 11 years, the world has changed. So using the old Chinese phrase – ‘three mountains,’ we got the new three bigger mountains in front of us.” Pin Ni said at the beginning, “The first one is inflation. The second one is the Ukraine war. The third one is the famous U.S. – China relationship. We may never know what could happen on the other side of those mountains. But I don’t think we have a choice but to move forward.”

Pin Ni continues: “Many of our members are here today. years ago, the “Select U.S.” was a slogan. But today, surviving the USA, unfortunately, and I have to be honest, is more of a reality and a challenge. Fortunately, we have two great leaders here joining us who will give us good advice.”
Martin O’Malley, the former Maryland governor, started his story in 2016, said: “During the presidential campaign year. It was a year in America that was fine with a lot of anger and fear in the electorate about a rapidly changing global economy. I did my very best in the time I had in that state to articulate a more optimistic future, not one that we should fear but rather one that we should embrace. Not a future of isolation but a future of international collaboration, which is an extended part of the American character. But to engage with the world, this American generation is not the first to face global challenges, threats, unpredictability, war, famine, and all of those other changes, coupled with new technologies in renewable energy, communications, and transportation and combined with the advent of the third industrial revolution.”
Amid all kinds of stress and anxiety, entrepreneurs struggle to cope with business development challenges. In this post-pandemic era, the trend of an intensified division of globalization will further increase the hardship of the international division between labor and global cooperation, both for the United States and China. The current challenges faced by Sino-US collaboration will become more prominent. CGCC Chicago has been working hard for Sino-U.S. business cooperation and striving to create a brighter future. We will work harder to push China-US relations in a better direction and work harder to help companies find certainty in an uncertain international environment.
