Solving the China Challenge: Practical Advice for Engaging in Trade and Investment with China

Kelley Drye Webinar

April 19, 2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (EDT)

Businesses face multiple challenges when engaging in commerce with China as the political and reputational risks of doing business there grow, and Chinese investment in the U.S. faces heightened scrutiny. Consumer-facing companies face pressures from shareholders and customers to disassociate themselves from supply chains that may include forced labor or other human rights violations; U.S. manufacturers face sanctions and export restrictions as goods, technology and know-how transfers to China are viewed increasingly through a tightening national security lens; and investors are facing heightened scrutiny as CFIUS has steadily increased its examination of Chinese investment in U.S. businesses.  This webinar will discuss the various challenges of doing business with, and in, China and the practical implications of cross-border, bi-directional commerce with the U.S.’ most contentious trading partner.  Kelley Drye Export and Sanctions Chair, Eric McClafferty, will be joined by International Trade partner, John Foote, and International Trade and Government Relations Special Counsel, Jennifer McCadney, for this one-hour discussion.
