For the first time in three years, AmCham China will restart our annual trip to meet with administration and congressional officials, policymakers, and think tanks to exchange views on US-China trade relations. The trip will also coincide with AmCham China and US Chamber's "China Business Conference."

With ongoing tensions in the bilateral relationship, 2023 will be a crucial year for multinational companies with significant stakes in both the US and China markets to engage with the US government. The DC Outreach program allows participants to actively engage in strategizing our messaging for these engagements and share valuable insights during each meeting with key stakeholders.

This year, AmCham China will engage members of the United States government and DC-based policy community. The 2023 delegation will be a tight knit group of experienced AmCham China leaders who will be entrusted to communicate the messaging of our Chamber to leaders in DC. Delegates should expect to invest roughly 2-hours per week into preparation calls and practice exercises leading up to the visit. As always, the Chairman will have the final approval of all applications to join the delegation.

Who can apply to participate?

Please note: Participation is limited to one China-based senior representative per company. The delegation will be capped at 20 participants.

Application Process:

Applications will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis to ensure the best delegation possible to present members' concerns to our stakeholders in Washington D.C. The deadline to apply is April 7, 2023.

As 2023 is a uniquely challenging year, we expect to take a smaller delegation to ensure our meetings and messaging are effective. Registration will remain open until the final delegation is decided by AmCham China leadership. As we expect to schedule our first planning meetings within the next couple of weeks, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

Who will we engage in DC?

  • Senior representatives from key administration agencies
  • Key members of Congress
  • Influential think tanks and scholars
  • Chinese Embassy in the US
