AmCham China led a delegation of 18 members to Washington, DC for our annual Doorknock from April 26-May 2. This year, we held nearly 50 meetings on Capitol Hill; met with representatives from the Departments of Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture, State, the Office of the US Trade Representative, the Chinese Embassy, and a variety of think tanks; and co-hosted the 9th annual China Business Conference with the US Chamber of Commerce, which included a keynote interview with US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.

Several members from our delegation will join this panel discussion to share with members the key messages we received from the US government, along with their general insights from the meetings. This event is off-the-record and limited to attendance by members only.

Please note walk-ins will not be accepted.
