Roundtable: Managing Risk in an Uncertain Business Climate

The US-China trade relationship is at a moment of significant uncertainty. The Trump administration's policies have not yet come fully into focus, but developments suggest we should expect changes to the philosophy and the mechanics of the US approach.  Meanwhile, China is in the midst of its own leadership shifts, set to culminate with the 19th Party Congress this fall, which will bring changes to the Party's top leadership, including the Politburo Standing Committee. How might current uncertainties in US-China relations and domestic Chinese politics impact business operations in China, and what should companies be doing to mitigate risks? 

Please join the US-China Business Council on February 2, 2017, at 1:30 pm, for an expert-led discussion on business risk mitigation in the current political and regulatory environment.   

Speakers include:

  • Andrew Gilholm, principal, Control Risks, heads political and regulatory risk consulting for Greater China and North Asia, advising clients on political, policy, regulatory and competitive dynamics, and actors that drive challenges and opportunities for foreign investors in China today.
  • Ling Jin, Control Risks, heads government affairs consulting in Greater China and North Asia, advising multinationals on government relations, partnership building, strategy development, and crisis communications.
  • Robert Kapla, partner, Squire Patton Boggs, chairs the firm's international public policy practice, advising sovereign governments on US policy and counseling multinational corporations on government relations around the globe.
  • Frank Samolis, partner, Squire Patton Boggs, specializes in international trade matters, and handles matters before the Office of the US Trade Representative, the US International Trade Commission, US Court of International Trade, US Customs Service, and the US Congress.

This event is for members and invited guests of USCBC only. Seats are limited and registration is required.
