Introduction

AmCham China typically undertakes an annual trip to Washington DC in late April or early May to meet with administration and congressional officials, policymakers, and think tanks to exchange views on US-China relations and other matters of mutual interest. This year, given the travel restrictions in place due to COVID-19, AmCham China's 2020 DC Outreach has gone virtual! Follow along on this page for updates on who we are meeting with, what topics are being discussed, and how you can get more information about AmCham China’s DC Outreach efforts. Participation in the Virtual DC Outreach program is open to AmCham China’s Board of Governors, Chairman’s Circle members, and Policy + subscribers.
