More than 100 USCBC member company representatives and invited guests convened for USCBC’s 50th Annual Membership Meeting on June 7 in Washington, DC. US-China policy experts and current and former government officials from the United States and China shared their insights on the state of the bilateral relationship and the implications for US-China cross-border trade and investment.
The morning kicked off with a panel on congressional actions toward China, featuring Jake Parker and Benjamin Frohman, professional staff members from the House Select Committee on the CCP. Both speakers discussed China’s economic policies and practices and the select committee’s priorities and recent activities.
Following discussions on congressional approaches to China, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for China Michael Chase and Ryan Hass, senior fellow and the Michael H. Armacost Chair in the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution, discussed US national security perspectives on China.
The meeting then shifted to China’s political economy, featuring Joyce Chang, chair of global research at JPMorgan Chase & Co, and Yeling Tan, assistant professor at the University of Oregon. Chang and Tan assessed the state of China’s economy, the recent political transition in Beijing, and implications for China’s domestic policymaking trajectory in the near term.
Peter Harrell, former White House senior director for international economics, and Kelly Ann Shaw, former deputy assistant to the president for international economic affairs and deputy director of the National Economic Council, discussed the evolution of US trade and economic policy toward China, including the Biden administration’s approach to export controls and outbound investment to China.
Newly appointed Chinese Ambassador to the United States Xie Feng concluded the meeting with the keynote speech on the US-China relationship.
