Campaign Statement

My name is Min Qin, currently serving as Vice President for Public Affairs of Mars China. I joined Mars in 2018 and lead Mars’ efforts to build and grow strategic partnerships with key public stakeholders at both central and local levels, conduct policy advocacy in key categories Mars operates in, formulate public affairs strategies, and protect and promote Mars’ corporate reputation. Prior to joining Mars, I worked with Fonterra and McKinsey, building and leading their external affairs function in Greater China, which was preceded by some years working in the Chinese government.

I hold a Master of Philosophy from Cambridge University and a BA from Foreign Affairs College in China. I was nominated a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum in 2006.

I would like to run for the 2020 Board of Governors of AmCham China. Standing at this historical moment of China’s development and US-China relations, I have a vision that we, at the Chamber, will have a critical role to play in shaping history in a way that will have a lasting impact to the business communities in both countries and beyond.

We at Mars have been very active in AmCham and participated, supported and contributed to various initiatives and activities AmCham organized, ranging from Doorknock to women’s summit, from white paper drafting to policy feedback, from digital to food safety, to name just a few.

For the new leaders of the Chamber, the challenges, uncertainties and opportunities awaiting us are unprecedented — all this requires us to be more bold, more balanced and more forward-looking. With my background and experience, I could add more diversity and balance to AmCham, and I am committed to letting our collective voices heard through more effective and trust-based communications and collaboration with all partners in Chin and the US. More specifically, I pledge to show more leadership in AmCham’s government stakeholder engagement and communication, especially in food and ag sector.

Vote for me, M&Ms — Min from Mars.  I am the diversity you need.
