The 2016 APCAC Business Conference will bring together over 300 business, policy, diplomatic, government, and media leaders for two days of important and incisive discussion on China’s Asia Pacific engagement and its implications for American business.

Challenges and opportunities affecting US business in East Asia, the future of Asia as a financial hub, China's regional engagement and One Belt, One Road initiative, and the regional trading environment are just some of the important themes and issues that will be examined on April 14. April 15 will be a deep-dive into more China-specific issues including leveraging corporate and government relations, China’s economic outlook and the 13th Five-Year Plan, and China’s economic slowdown.

The launch of AmCham China's 18th Annual White Paper on American Business, a 'Meet your Embassy' reception, and a gala dinner to celebrate AmCham China's 25th anniversary are just some of the exciting special events planned during and around the conference.
