Thanks for your trust and support, and, I’m honored to serve as the governor of Amcham China 2017 and 2018 Board, which enables me to advocate equal treatment and a level playing political field for our common business interest in China on your behalf. Our voice has been heard by both Chinese and the US government agencies, but there is still a long way to go and a lot of things need to be done.
I see it is more important today than ever before, for AmCham member companies invested in China to get the equal opportunities in the policy & regulation development processes and implementation processes. Given the current trade and tariff issues between US and China, 2019 will be a very challenging year for all the US companies. The board should work even more closer with the Embassy and the Chinese government to address the tough issues, such as Market Approach, Equal Treatment, and to help the member companies to mitigate the business risks due to the trade conflicts between the two countries.
I would like to continue to remain in the board and work with other board governors to serve for the member companies and hope to get your support and vote for me. Thank you very much!
