With many recent changes in China, now is the time to update your company’s China strategy.

At the September MITA meeting, you can stay current in your understanding of important factors that impact U.S. – China business relations including: a new U.S. Ambassador to China; the Chinese government’s recent release of a new 5-year plan announcing its support for emerging industries; macroeconomic challenges facing the Chinese economy; and marked growth in foreign acquisitions by Chinese companies. You’ll also hear from a Wisconsin business executive whose company has successfully navigated China’s evolving business landscape over the past decade.
