China’s National Development and Reform Commission this week thanked AmCham China for its support during the past year.
At a meeting between NDRC Department of Foreign Capital and Overseas Investment Deputy Counsel Liu Hongkuan and AmCham China Chairman William Zarit, the two sides discussed the highlights of this year’s China Business Climate Survey, which AmCham China will be releasing on Jan. 30.
