USCBC Beijing 2024 China Operations Conference & Reception

USCBC China Operations Conference (CHOPs) is an annual flagship event hosted by the USCBC’s Beijing Office. Each year, we unite leading experts, academics, executives, and policy makers to exchange insights on pivotal developments shaping business in China. In addition to themed expert panels covering China’s foreign policy, economic landscape, and decarbonization efforts, this year’s CHOPs will also feature a reception commemorating the 45th anniversary of the establishment US-China diplomatic relations. We are honored to gather a group of distinguished government officials, executives and key opinion leaders for this momentous occasion.
