Tuesday, March 5

The Chinese government says that it wants Chinese investment in the United States to double every year for the next decade. What do they want to buy? And considering what the Chinese say about the U.S. today, why do they want to invest here in the first place?

This seminar examines what the Chinese say and what they actually do in the areas of business, law, and negotiation. The three panelists have extensive experience dealing with the Chinese and have unique insights into how Chinese deals actually get done.

Post-event social hour catered by Jing's.
