In partnership with the Manufacturing and Sourcing Forum, AmCham China is pleased to invite you to a lunch panel discussion on rising costs in China. Based on responses from AmCham China's 2012 Business Climate Survey, member companies are experiencing significant increases in labor costs in the form of both wage inflation and the new social benefits tax.

Among the issues to be discussed: What is the impact of spiraling costs on business? Which industries are most affected? To what degree is China losing its competitive advantage? Join us to learn more about what rising costs are likely to mean for the next stage of China's economic development.
