The global outbreak of the novel coronavirus has presented unprecedented challenges for many of us, but the US business community has responded magnificently. To date, our member companies have made donations to support Wuhan, Hubei, and other areas in need, totaling more than RMB 540 million ($78 million).
In-kind contributions include personal protective equipment (PPE), medical devices, pharmaceuticals, disinfectant and cleaning supplies, logistics services, insurance, and more. Meanwhile, AmCham China has encouraged and facilitated member company donations through trusted local partners and channels. On the overseas donation front, we continue to work closely with Direct Relief, with donation shipments having already arrived in Wuhan.
As well as coordinated national outreach and providing valuable information to our members through the information portal, AmCham China is working closely with local governments, including Wuhan, Beijing, Tianjin, Dalian, and Shenyang, to understand what specific needs for help member companies have as they prepare to reopen for work. This comes in response to efforts by MOFCOM and other ministries and provinces to develop policies that will assist companies – especially factories and SMEs – in overcoming their ongoing challenges.
Below is a list of our member companies who have made significant contributions. Many more member companies have also made contributions but prefer to remain anonymous.
