Esteemed AmCham China voting members, as President of Dell Technologies in Greater China, I seek your vote for re-election as Governor to AmCham China’s 2019 Board of Governors.
As one of the most influential non-profit, non-governmental organizations, Amcham China supports hundreds of American companies’ operations in China through policy advocacy, government engagement, networking and business support services. Proud to be a member of the chairman’s circle, Dell Technologies has been actively participating in AmCham China's various advocacy and engagement activities, many of which I have had the honor to be part of. I greatly appreciate the continuous efforts and growing opportunities for AmCham China to further enhance the strategic relationship and facilitate business development between the two most important economies in the world during this critical juncture. My term on the board will continue to focus on the following three areas:
Broaden influence – AmCham China has been the most important platform for American business community in China. The increasing significance of the Chinese market for American businesses and the complicating uncertainty in trade and investment relations between China and the United States present new challenges and opportunities for AmCham China. I will support AmCham China to develop and maintain effective and influential relationships with the Chinese policy makers and government stakeholders. Meanwhile, I will fully leverage my role as the Vice Chairman of China Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment (CAEFI) to increase AmCham China’s influence among key Chinese stakeholders.
Support business environment – AmCham China has done a great job in advocating for a better business environment in China, and its voice has been heard by the top leadership from both the U.S. and China. I can support AmCham China to help the member companies to understand the policy correctly and deliver the right message to the appropriate authorities. Yet with its rich resources and expertise, we can help our headquarters better understand the changing political, regulatory and economic landscape of China, and offer guidance and needed support for our operations in China. As an executive management leader in multinational companies for many years, I'm familiar with the internal and external working mechanisms, and am confident to create more synergies for business growth by boosting exchanges and collaborations among members of AmCham China and with their Chinese counterparts.
Being a trusted counsel – My long-term engagement with AmCham China dated back to the time period when I was with Schneider Electric and Tellabs. With my educational background and years of successful business experience, I will leverage my in-depth industry expertise from the ICT sector and help AmCham China better position in the Era of Digital Transformation.
I appreciate your vote and will do my best to represent the interest of all U.S. businesses, and work towards my goals by serving AmCham China and our member companies with my passion and professionalism.
