I have been associated with MetLife for over 25 years. As an AmCham China member for the last 24 years, I had the privilege of serving as Board of Governors from 2009 to 2012 and from 2014 to 2017. I was also a founding member of the Insurance Forum and has been the Forum’s Co-Chair for two years.
The United States and China have one of the most important and complex bilateral relationships in the world today. The challenges facing U.S.-China bilateral relations have been mounting over the past several years and the potential risks associated with geopolitical conflicts have become critical for multinational companies, and especially for U.S. companies. AmCham China has been playing an important role in representing U.S. business community as well as promoting U.S.-China economic and investment cooperation over the years, its role becomes even more important in these times of changes and uncertainties. I hope AmCham China will continue to help members succeed despite the complexities in the political, economic and regulatory environment around all of us, and I hope I have the opportunity to contribute my time and experience in promoting the mutual beneficial relationship between China and the U.S., to best represent your business interests and priorities, and to do our best to make the environment around us better.
Please let me know, if I am elected, how the Board could better serve our members and help to create a stable and healthy business environment for US business in China. Let us all work together to make AmCham China a better and stronger institution.
