Crisis and Government Engagement Strategies During Heightened US-China Tensions

With heightened tensions between the US and China, and uncertainty in the political and regulatory environment, US companies are facing new risks. What are the challenges that companies are already facing because of heightened tensions? What should companies be doing to plan and reduce risk? And to what extent should companies be engaging government stakeholders?

Please join us for a breakfast briefing with Helen Yang, Vice President of Hill+Knowlton Strategies China, who will discuss case studies of how companies have been impacted by rising US-China tensions and strategies for proactively planning and engaging with government to reduce risk. Helen Yang helps provide key counselling, and helps devise communications strategies to clients in industries covering retail, energy & manufacturing, hospitality, hi-tech, healthcare and consumer goods. She has 25 years experience working with global 500 companies and industry-leading organizations in China on corporate communications, crisis management, CSR, government affairs and training.

Helen also serves at the Tsinghua Environmental Innovation Institute as the Head of Crisis Management, and served for the National Development Reform Commission as an advisor for its "One-Belt, One-Road" Promotion Center.
