Why was this event critically timely and important?


  • U.S. and China trade relations are entering into a chapter that is so drastically different from we have ever seen before in such an unpredictable manner in such a short time


  • The present and the future are clouded with uncertainties that have changed and will continue to change with the brink of an eye with no clear path to stay on track


  • Many multinational companies as well as consumers are unprepared for such a drastic change


  • China is actively promoting its “One Belt One Road” initiative and has expanded to “Digital Belt and Road.” The success of the initiative will change the world economic landscape


  • Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency have dominated the news, created tens of thousands of jobs, and created a flood of conferences and seminars. While many have made hundreds of millions in engaging this technology, many more have lost hundreds of millions in the process.  What is the implication on trade, eCommerce, and fintech?


  • Industrialization comes with environmental issues. After decades of disregard of the environment, China is imposing a number of rules to protect its environment and even restricts the import of wastes.  What is the implication for U.S. companies operating in China and what are the opportunities for Green Technology?


  • This highly condensed, comprehensive conference will contiue to update the current economic and business climate in China and will address some of the operational and management issues in operating U.S.-China business. At the same time, as we make decisions for the future, it will focus on the future trends and business sectors that warrant discussion.


Electronic version of the conference book is available to conference attendees and USCCC members free.  For other, the cost will be $75.  Please contaact us at info@usccc.org or 312-368-9911.


World Manufacturing Convention

May 24-26, 2018

Hefei, Anhui Province, China

United States of America-China Chamber of Commerce (“USCCC”) is proud to co-sponsor and lead a delegation from the U.S. to the “World Manufacturing Convention”, a high-level conference in Hefei, Anhui Province, China. This event will be held from May 24 to 26, 2018 at Hefei Binhu International Exhibition & Convention Center, Anhui Province.  Over 2,000 leaders and executives are expected to participate in this special event. The convention is hosted by Anhui Provincial Government along with a number of organizations.  Senior leaders from the central government and business leaders, which include a Deputy Premier of The People’s Republic of China, Party Secretary Li Jinbin, and Governor Li Guoying, Anhui Province, will speak and receive guests during this convention.  The Co-Chairs for this event will be Mr. Christian Wulff, President of Germany from 2010 to 2012, Mr. Jean-Pierre Raffarin, Prime Minister of France from 2002 to 2005, and Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the Eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations


With the advent of modern manufacturing technologies, cloud and mobile computing, and advanced logistics, manufacturing is going through the “4th Revolution” since China reinvented itself in the late 70s.  However, this time, the revolution is advancing at an accelerated pace with digitalization leading the charge.  The six most valuable companies are all digital companies, and General Electric, the icon of industrial company, is under siege.  This event will address the change in manufacturing and provide a platform for face to face match making.
