Improving China’s Business Environment through Outreach, Engagement, and Advocacy Actions

As a primary pillar in our pursuit of improving the business environment and helping American companies succeed in China, AmCham China’s advocacy efforts address a wide scope of industry needs and extend from the central government to the local municipality levels. AmCham China advocates on behalf of our members’ evolving needs in the ever-changing China business landscape through a host of central and subnational government engagement efforts, large events such as the Annual Appreciation Dinner, and ongoing policy analysis and recommendations.

Policy Priorities

Our policy priorities – Build a Healthy Working Relationship, Ensure a Level Playing Field for FIEs, and Cooperate on Issues of Global Commons – are the culmination of discussions among AmCham China members and supported by data drawn from the annual China Business Climate Survey Report and the American Business in China White Paper.

Government Outreach

As a bridge between US business in China, the Chinese government, and the US government, AmCham China works between the worlds of policy and commerce on both sides of the US-China relationship to foster a business environment built upon mutual success and understanding. Through our yearly Appreciation Dinner, annual member delegation to Washington, DC, and our numerous, year-round meetings with Chinese government officials and entities, the Chamber’s efforts to strengthen the US-China business landscape have a long history of impact and cooperative success.


Appreciation Dinner

An annual event to thank Chinese and US government officials for their support of US companies in China and to celebrate collaborative relationships. The occasion provides member company executives with an invaluable opportunity to network with hundreds of attending government officials.


DC Outreach

Every year, AmCham China leads a delegation of China-based executives to Washington, DC. Collectively, our delegations represent hundreds of years of on-the-ground business experience in the Chinese market, sent to communicate AmCham China’s positions and influence the conversation on US-China relations in DC.


Meeting Summaries

AmCham China and its members frequently meet with various Chinese and US government officials and entities to share advocacy messaging and provide insight into the business landscape from a member perspective. These snapshots capture highlights from these meetings.


B.I.O. Trips

AmCham China’s Business Investment Outreach (B.I.O.) Trips take delegations of member companies on tours of select cities and provinces to explore new opportunities and develop business relationships throughout China.


Local Engagement

AmCham China has a variety of vehicles to connect the largest foreign business community in China to many local government partners, working at the provincial and local levels with government entities, development zones, and industrial parks and businesses from across China.

Social Impact Initiative

AmCham China launched the Social Impact Initiative in July 2020, focused on bringing together government agencies, research institutions, global experts, and AmCham China member companies to drive real change in the areas of public health and micro-, small-, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in China.

Initiative participants have engaged in a series of working sessions to share best practices, discuss solutions, and develop a report that showcases the “in China, for China” commitment of foreign-invested enterprises in China and generates positive social impact.
