*This event is for Policy+ subscribers only*
One result of the US-China trade tensions has been a rise in nationalism – particularly as expressed on social media – with companies raising concerns over the possibility of widespread consumer backlash against American products. Additionally, multinational companies face increasing political risk from compliance blind-spots that can be quickly amplified online.
What is the nature of nationalism and what does it mean for foreign businesses operating in China? What strategic communications tools should they use to prevent them from being caught off guard?
We are pleased to host Dr. Ying (Maggie) Jiang of the University of Western Australia who will brief Policy+ subscribers on cyber-nationalism and propaganda techniques over video on October 11, 2019 from noon to 1:30 pm in the Washington Room at the AmCham China Sanlitun office.
In addition to her role as Associate Professor, Dr. Jiang also directs the Confucius Institute at UWA. You can sign up by clicking "register" above and submit any advance questions via the online form.
Lunch will be provided. As seating is limited, registration is initially limited to one representative per company. If space allows, we will open registration up to your colleagues closer to the date of the event. Please RSVP by noon on September 30. If you have any questions, please email Chloe Ma at email@example.com.
