Appreciation Dinner

The Appreciation Dinner is an annual event held to thank Chinese and US government officials for their support of US companies in China and to celebrate collaborative relationships. The occasion also provides member company executives with an invaluable opportunity to network with hundreds of attending government officials who are supportive of AmCham China’s work and are crucial to furthering the cause of American business in China.

Last year’s theme was "Partnership of Prosperity (互利共赢 共同发展)", reflecting AmCham China’s endeavor to promote further economic cooperation between China and the US. AmCham China was honored to have Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang and US Ambassador to China Max Baucus among the high-profile speakers.

This annual event also includes a seminar component to address key components of the business environment. Last year’s panelists included Long Guoqiang, Deputy Director of the Development Research Center of the State Council, Zhang Yansheng, Secretary-General, Academic Committee of the National Development and Reform Commission, and Timothy Stratford, Member of the AmCham China board and a Partner of Covington & Burling LLP Beijing Representative Office.
