"The final implementation phase of China's Corporate Social Credit System (Corporate SCS, or System) has started: the test-version of the National 'Internet + Monitoring' System (国家 "互联网 + 监管" 系统), a meta-database to integrate the complete set of monitoring and credit information data on companies, is about to be launched. The implementation of the Corporate Social Credit System is moving into the decisive stage. This should act as a wakeup call for foreign business in China: it's high time to take a close look at the System's far-reaching implications." -- The Digital Hand: How China's Corporate Social Credit System Conditions Market Actors.

AmCham Shanghai is delighted to host Björn Conrad, CEO and co-founder of Sinolytics, an expert on China's economic, industrial and technology policy, to present his recent report on China's corporate social credit system, which was co-authored with the EU Chamber of Commerce in China. Bjorn will provide a 30-minute overview of China's corporate social credit system and what it means for companies, before shifting to audience discussion/Q&A.

This event is an AmCham Shanghai Government Policy Support (GPS) workshop. The GPS series brings together different voices to deep-dive into Chinese government policy and its effects on American companies in China. For more information about the GPS program, please contact Daniel Rechtschaffen at daniel.rechtschaffen@amcham-shanghai.org. This program is off the record, and seating is limited.
