2018 is a historic year for American companies operating in China: as China marks its 40th anniversary of economic reform and opening, AmCham China is issuing the 20th edition of our American Business in China White Paper. As one of the most comprehensive assessments of the operating environment for foreign companies in China, the 2018 White Papers contains nearly 40 chapters and provides an in-depth description and analysis of a variety of industries, cross-sector issues, and regions of importance to our membership. In this period of increased tension and uncertainty in the bilateral economic relationship, we hope that the messages of the White Paper – the views and practical recommendations of our membership – will provide a positive and actionable framework to help both the US and Chinese governments as they work to ensure a healthy and growing bilateral economic relationship based on fairness and reciprocal treatment.


The White Paper is provided complimentary to AmCham China members, and for RMB400 to non-members.
