Chicago Program: The Chinese Economy: Road to Reform?

Tempered optimism sums up corporate America’s view of its business prospects in China, according to the US-China Business Council’s annual survey. While US business in China continues to post strong growth, US companies invested there face significant challenges like rising costs, market barriers, policy uncertainty, and intellectual property concerns. At the same time, China’s leaders have announced goals to make the market play a bigger role in China’s economy and potentially widen investment access for foreign companies. How and when will these reforms play out? Will they address US companies’ concerns?

Join the US-China Business and Chicago Council on Global Affairs for an expert panel to take an in-depth look into these issues.

Panel will include:

  • Stephen M. Chipman, Chief Executive Officer, Grant Thornton  (moderator)
  • Evan A. Feigenbaum, Vice Chairman, The Paulson Institute
  • John Frisbie, President of the US-China Business Council
  • Phil Levy, Senior Fellow on the Global Economy with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs

This event is for members and invited guests of CCGA and USCBC only.
