Event Details

Supply chain resilience is top of mind in the wake of the U.S.-China trade war and the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies have been actively reviewing and in some cases altering supply chains in light of trade frictions. With the COVID-19 pandemic, governments are considering more interventionist roles. They are looking to create shorter supply chains and increased diversification with broad reliance on essential security, export controls, or domestic production requirements.


AmCham Shanghai is pleased to present a webinar by Crowell & Moring International (CMI) on May 8 at 8 am Shanghai time. Ambassador Robert Holleyman, Former Deputy U.S. Trade Representative and current CMI President and CEO, CMI Senior Advisor Himamauli Das, and Crowell & Moring LLP Partner Evan Y. Chuck will discuss what the trade war and COVID-19 will mean for the future of supply chains and the U.S.-China relationship; how to rebuild international commerce and prevent the next crisis; and what industries can do to strengthen investment and infrastructure, data flow across borders, and more flexible rules and regulations to facilitate a more digital economy and business continuity.
