Event Details

The AmCham China Business Climate Survey is one of the most-studied reports for governments to understand the challenges foreign companies face when operating in China, as well as one of the most essential planning tools for American companies here. This year, to share the report with our Shenyang members and the public, we will hold the official release event at Grand Hyatt Shenyang, on Friday March 10.

This is the 19th year we have conducted the AmCham China Business Climate Survey, and we are proud to have cooperated with Bain & Company once again. The 2017 report will highlight our member companies’ concerns regarding China’s changing regulatory and policy environment, their perceptions of the ongoing reforms, as well as expectations for the new year. We look forward to sharing the results and celebrating the release of the report with the business community.

We also invite you to join the networking night after the release, to discuss the results with other members of the business community, government officials and to meet the AmCham China Chairman, Bill Zarit, as well as the Northeast Chapter Executive Committee Members.

Admittance by prior registration only.
