Event Details

Join us to meet Experts and Advisors that Can Help You in the US-China Trade Frictions.

  • How would US companies react to the foreseeable risk and increase in cost in its global supply chain & sourcing?
  • How would US companies protect themselves in facing the potential challenges and delay in customs processing procedures?
  • How would US companies better leverage the USTR exclusion process to gain exemption for its products from the additional duties?

To better answer those operational questions for members, AmCham is hosting a workshop on Tuesday, July 17. We will bring experts in the areas of customs & trade, supply chain & sourcing, and legal together with corporate members who have questions and services needs.

Experts from each of the above area will share their insights on "what a company should do", before a free match-making session where corporate members can talk with different experts and service providers about suggestions and advice.
