COVID-19 is having far-reaching impacts and the Chinese government is developing a range of policies to revitalize the economy and ensure the health of its citizens. There is now an urgent need to 1) help China's millions of SMEs recover from the devastating economic impact of the epidemic and 2) accelerate public health reforms described in the "13th Five Year Plan" and "Healthy China 2030 Outline".

AmCham China will launch an innovative Social Impact Initiative focused initially on these two pressing social issues. One of the core principles driving this Initiative is our belief that the private sector has a meaningful role to play in helping China to achieve its objectives and that AmCham China members are uniquely qualified to help.

We will be holding a a free online session on April 23 to introduce this Initiative in greater detail and answer any questions you have for this Initiative. In the meantime, we appreciate your suggestions and ideas on how we best design and implement this Initiative to address China's pressing needs in 2020 and beyond.
