With logistics challenges all over the news, supply chain execution has become a boardroom conversation... pivotal to business success. The pressure demands action.


An opportunity to fundamentally reinvent an industry does not come around often. The time is now to make the changes that were always needed but never implemented.


Join us in Chicago June 1-2 as we bring together the end-to-end logistics ecosystem (from inbound logistics to
warehouse operations to last mile delivery) to revolutionize supply chain execution.

The last in-person event hosted by USCCC was the 24th Annual Chinese New Year Dinner on January 30, 2020. It was fitting that we recommence our in-person meetings by celebrating the Chinese New Year in 2022.  If you couldn't join us this year, we look forward to seeing you in the future.

As a supporting organization, U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce invites you to attend Asia Trade Week, an online and in-person event.

The last 12 months have seen Asian trade and economies rebound following the shock of covid-19. Despite continued tensions between China and America, and climate-led disruptions to supply chains, reasons for optimism about the future of Asian trade remain. For example, the possible ratification of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) early in 2022 is hoped to provide opportunities for both corporates and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

As we enter the second quarter of 2022, for business leaders and policymakers with a stake in Asian trade, pertinent questions endure such as:

 

  • What are the key policy developments on regional government agendas?

  • How will these shape a continued economic recovery?

  • Will SMEs continue to form the bedrock of trade in Asia?

  • What technologies will emerge that improve supply-chain efficiency and transparency?

  • How will COP26 shape sustainability issues and what is the impact on businesses?

USCCC is also working with Canton Fair to connect and facilitate exchange between buyers and suppliers.  Business match meetings will be arranged immediately after the information session or even at later dates. The purpose of the initial matchmaking meetings is for the buyers and suppliers to introduce to one another and to get acquainted.  Each meeting is scheduled for 5 minutes but at the discretion of the parties can be extended.
