Getting Started with USCBC

Welcome to the US-China Business Council! USCBC has been providing unmatched services and helping its membership succeed in China since 1974, and we're happy to have you as a member to continue that tradition. If you're a new member, there's a few things that you'll want to do in order to get the most out of your membership. 

1. Set up your account on our website

The sharpest analysis on our website lives behind a paywall. In order to read it, you'll need an account with our website. Often, your company will provide a roster of staff to set up with an account, so if you've already recieved an email from us with information about setting up your account, you're already all set. If you havent, set up your account here. Be sure to use your work email!

2. Sign up for emails

The most important communication with our members is done through email. We offer a range of newsletters, from our News Overview which provides a roundup of the most important news in the US-China space at 9am sharp every weekday, to our China Market Intelligence newsletter, which brings you up-to-date analysis about the China market. Sign up here.

3. Check out upcoming events

USCBC hosts a range of events, from briefings on specific topics to roundtable discussions with important stakeholders from the US and Chinese governments. See upcoming events here. Alternatively, you can have a look at our meeting archive to watch past events.

4. Read some of our publications

Although many of the articles on our website are also sent to members via email, you can always read them on the website as well. The ones you'll want to be most familiar with are:

  • China Market Intelligence: A biweekly collection of in-depth research and reportage from our advisory staff on current events and discussion topics in US-China business relations.
  • Washington Update: A weekly rundown of US government actions and decisions affecting business dealings with China.
  • Industry Updates: Timely updates on a range of business issues and industries in China, from agriculture and food safety to financial services
  • China Business Review: The official magazine of the US-China Business Council, publishing China trade and investment news and analysis since 1974.

You can find a more comprehensive list of our publications here

Our staff are all happy to help you with any specific request from your company. Feel free to reach out directly to any of our staff with questions or requests, and we'll be happy to help. Find a list of our staff in our Washington, DC, Beijing, and Shanghai offices on our staff page.
