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.

25th Annual Chinese New Year Dinner

Arrival of the Year of the Tiger
Monday, February 28, 2022
The Phoenix Restaurant
Chinatown, Chicago

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?

 

Import Compliance Webinar

 

10:00-11:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 6, 2022

 

“Defending Your Supply Chain: Navigating CBP Inquiries under the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).”

On June 21, 2022, U.S. Government implemented Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) with a focus on scrutinizing and preventing the importation of goods produced in whole or in part in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China. The UFLPA establishes a rebuttable presumption that goods produced in whole or in part in XUAR are produced with forced labor and are, therefore, subject to detention. This presumption extends to any finished articles which CBP suspects contain raw materials or components sourced from XUAR, and therefore may impact far more trade than simply articles directly sourced from the region.

 

In cooperation with Rock Trade Law, LLC, the U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce, will host a webinar to address UFLPA based on the latest documents published by CBP and DHS. Serhiy (Serj) Kiyasov, who concentrates his practice on assisting clients with various matters involving international trade law and U.S. Customs import and export compliance, will navigate the inquiries under UFLPA and discuss proactive approaches to mitigate its impacts.

 

The webinar will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.   Please click the following link to or go to www.usccc.org to register:

 

The areas of focus will include:

 

  • Procedural History of the UFLPA and Past Findings

  • CBP’s Enforcement Process

  • Evidentiary Standard Under the UFLPA

  • High-Risk Entities and Products

  • Proactive Approach to Mitigate the Impacts
