In March 2009 China's State Council determined that the city of Shanghai would become a global financial center by 2020. In late 2018 to early 2019 AmCham Shanghai surveyed 26 executives in financial services and affiliated sectors to determine how close Shanghai was to achieving this ambition. Although the city has made great strides since 2009, respondents argued that Shanghai remains far from its goal. We believe there are several ways to increase the city's attractiveness as a center for international capital, accelerate its progress toward achieving its 2020 ambitions and alleviate the concerns of our members and the international financial services community.
AmCham Shanghai invites you to the launch of our latest Viewpoint report. The session will include a presentation of the report followed by a panel discussion with financial experts, including Wells Fargo Deputy General Manager Han Lin, Capital Eight Founder and Chairman Joanne Wood, and O'Melveny Shanghai Managing Partner Walker Wallace.
