Offline (EN) | Agriculture, Food & Beverage Roundtable with FDA
The Roundtable meeting with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is part of Public Private Partnership programs to connect industries with policymakers.
AmCham China is proud to announce an opportunity for Agriculture and F&B companies to meet with one of the first high-level FDA delegations to visit China since pre-pandemic. This is a rare and valuable chance to engage with the U.S. government officials responsible for shaping policies in our two countries' food and drug industries.
The delegation is led by Mark Abdoo, Associate Commissioner for Global Policy and Strategy and Andi Lipstein Fristedt Deputy Commissioner for Policy, Legislation, And International Affairs.
It will focus on the impact of domestic and global policies, legislation, and regulations. It will provide a great platform for the industry to stay informed about public policies and to provide feedback and comments from the frontline to influence governmental decision-making and public policy. It will also provide great opportunities for open and deeper discussions to tackle challenges in both Chinese and US markets.
