Event Details

As China balances reopening business with containing the spread of the virus, companies face new challenges to their operations and markets. In this month's survey on the impacts of COVID-19 on member companies' operations in China, we added new questions focusing on human resources challenges, including questions related to hiring freezes, delays or cancellations of bonuses and promotions, in addition to our routine questions regarding investment levels, strategy and status of re-opening.

We are pleased to invite you to join us for a webinar via Microsoft Teams on Friday, May 29, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am CST (Thursday, May 28, 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm EST), where AmCham China Chairman, Greg Gilligan, and President, Alan Beebe, will share findings from the latest survey and discuss the implications for business leaders and policymakers during this unique time.

What is new about this webinar?

For the first time, we are featuring charts that compare data from all four surveys to help members better visualize the evolving impact of the pandemic on foreign business operations.

What should you do in addition to attending the webinar?

If you are the primary member of your company, or the designated person to fill out surveys at the Chamber on behalf of your company, please be sure to participate in the survey before EOB this Friday, May 22.

Special notice:

  • Please register by Thursday, May 28, 2PM
