China

The Chamber's China team helps bolster the U.S.-China economic and commercial relationship in a number of key areas and industries, including intellectual property rights, capital markets, and environmental reform.

The China program addresses challenges in the emerging areas of Chinese standards, competition, government procurement, and patent policies. It conducts programs with Chinese and U.S. government, corporate, and association stakeholders on the important role of American business in China's efforts to build an innovative economy. 

The China program works to build a platform to facilitate sustained dialogue and information sharing between U.S. and Chinese stakeholders in the area of corporate citizenship.

The China program manages a Greater China Initiative, consisting of an array of programs, including dialogues such as the Hong Kong-United States Business Council, and activities focused on increasing trade and investment between the United States, Taiwan, and Mongolia.
