As fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the global community has realized that economic growth and fair development should not be in conflict. More than ever, AmCham China’s member companies have contributed to building a resilient, sustainable, and robust society in China.
Based on feedback from member companies, AmCham China’s 2021-2022 Social Impact Initiative focused on three topics: 1) promote US-China collaboration on reducing carbon emission and countering the climate crisis; 2) mobilize MNCs and build an inclusive community to support China’s rural revitalization efforts; 3) support China’s SMEs to access markets abroad and go through digital transformation.
AmCham China has launched an innovative Social Impact Initiative in July 2020 focused initially on these two pressing social issues. One of the core principles driving this Initiative is our belief that the private sector has a meaningful role to play in helping China to achieve its objectives and that AmCham China members are uniquely qualified to help. We have successfully conducted more than 10 working sessions and two high-profile Social Impact Summits in 2020 and 2021 respectively. In the year to come, we will conduct more events, webinars, and meetings as part of the 2022-2023 Social Impact Initiative.
