The Future of US-China Trade Relations and the Impact on State Economies

US-China trade supports seven million US jobs. With political tensions on the rise, what is the best course of action? Bilateral relations are at a critical crossroads. The ongoing trade war has cost US jobs, hurt famers, stymied foreign direct investment, and increased prices for popular consumer goods. New policies are needed that reflect the need to strengthen national security while maintaining mutually beneficial commercial relations and avoiding wholesale decoupling. How do we thread this needle and how can states assist?

Please join the US-China Business Council in partnership with the Eastern Trade Council for a webinar on these crucial topics. USCBC President Craig Allen will lead the event. 

  • Craig Allen is president of USCBC. A former ambassador to Brunei, he had a distinguished career as a foreign service officer in the Department of Commerce where he was posted in China and elsewhere in the Asia Pacific region. He regularly appears in US and China media as an expert on the bilateral relationship.
  • The US-China Business Council is a business association with more than 230 US members including some of the world’s most iconic brands. Now in its 48th year, USCBC, through its offices in Washington, DC, Shanghai and Beijing, provides research, market analyses and advocacy for its members.
  • The Eastern Trade Council was formed in 1999 to facilitate cooperation among the ten northeastern states in export development. It is an affiliate organization of the Council of State Governments’ Eastern Regional Conference.
