U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce and Changzhou City in China, with the support of Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s World Trade Association, World Trade Center Wisconsin, Asia-America Chamber of Commerce in Boston, and other collaborating organizations, are pleased to announce that they will host the “Changzhou Meets The U.S. (Milwaukee and Boston): A Seminar on Bilateral Trade & Investment,” of which, each event will be followed by a networking cocktail reception and a dinner.
These two special events will be held on:
Milwaukee: Monday, June 10, 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., at The InterContinental Milwaukee Hotel, Milwaukee, 139 East Kilbourn Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53202.
Boston: Thursday, June 13, 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at InterContinental Boston Hotel, 510 Atlantic Avenue, Boston, MA, 02210.
The programs will focus on bilateral trade and investments opportunities between the U.S. and China in honor of a high level delegation consisting of over 50 senior business and government leaders from Changzhou, led by The Honorable Fang Guoqiang, Vice Mayor. Panelists for the forums will consist of Vice Mayor Fang Guoqiang, representatives from Kohler Co., Rexnord Corporation, Amphenol Corporation and Sensata Technologies. There will be other presentations in addition to the forums.
China, which has built its economy primarily on export, industrial production, and fixed assets investments, is now moving to an economy that will focus on domestic consumption and the service sectors. In addition, the country is re-balancing the distribution in wealth, improving its environment, and encouraging outbound investments. These focuses will accelerate reforms and open up different kinds of opportunities for U.S. companies and professionals.
Changzhou is strategically located in the Yangtze River Delta, which arguably is the center of economic development of China. It is only an hour away via high speed rail from Shanghai, but its operating cost is significantly lower. The city is progressive, and many companies in Changzhou have set up operations overseas. These two seminars will address some of the issues that are relevant to U.S. companies and professionals, and they will give the participants an opportunity to meet face to face with senior leaders and business executives in Changzhou.
