What Is the Future of the China Market? US Multinational Commercial Update, Asia M&A Trends and US-China Trade Insights

An International Business Briefing Webinar

This is part of a webinar series hosted by Faegre Drinker’s international team. The series will tackle timely issues of importance for companies with international business and growth objectives.

As multinational companies adapt to the challenges of COVID-19 through measures that include supply chain diversification, political tension continues to escalate between the world’s two largest economies. The tension places additional pressure on bilateral trade relationships, making it especially challenging for companies to evaluate foreign investment plans and is leading both US and Chinese companies to revisit their M&A strategies. How are companies adjusting amid this geopolitical backdrop? What trends are developing? What might be ahead for China as a domestic market, and as a trade and investment partner for US multinationals? And what impact might the US elections have on commercial relations?

In the fourth installment of this year’s International Business Briefing webinar series, we will hear from Jacob Parker, senior vice president of the US-China Business Council, who will provide a review of the USCBC’s 2020 Annual Member’s Survey from companies operating in China. We will learn about China and regional APAC M&A trends and influencers from Euan Rellie, cofounder and senior managing director of BDA Partners, a global investment bank focused on Asia-related advice on cross-border M&A, capital raising, and financial restructuring. In addition, Nate Bolin, a Faegre Drinker partner who focuses on trade remedies and national security matters and who previously served as a trade specialist with the US Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, will address recent China trade law developments, and potential post-election bilateral trade scenarios. George Martin, co-chair of Faegre Drinker’s China practice, will moderate the session.


We look forward to a lively session, with extended time allowed for Q&A with this insightful panel.
