Building on our Successful Trade Mission

What we were able to accomplish in our 2018 China Trade Mission were incredible. In as little as 17 days, the Chinese Chamber trade delegation visited 11 cities with 145 million population in total and 2.65 trillion USD in GDP. We came back with two signed agreement to build friendship cities relationship between Cincinnati and Chongqing, and West Chester and Jiaozhou. Subsequently, the Mayor of Chongqing, Mr. Tang Liangzhi, came to visit Cincinnati on May 24, 2019. Mayor Cranley received the delegation in his office and received a letter of invitation from Mr. Tang to attend the Smart China Expo, held in Chongqing from August 26 to 29.

The Chinese Chamber once again took on the responsibility to organize Midwestern businesses to go exhibit at the Smart China Expo. While the Expo itself is little known to many, it is a very high level expo co-organize by the top state-level ministries in China, such as the Ministry of Science & Technology, the Ministry of Industries and Information Technologies and the State Academy of Science, etc. It aims to promote trade and technological advancements in emerging industries such as big data, smart cities, artificial intelligence, smart grid, smart homes, smart driving, as well as more conventional industries such as precision and advanced manufacturing and materials. Applications of such technological advancements can be used for consumer and industrial segments and are considered in high demand for the China market in the years to come.

Business Luncheon: Tariffs Impact & Counter Measures

Join us and a panel of experts to explore the impact and possible counter measures to the tariffs that may affect your companies’ bottom lines.

By popular request, the Greater Cincinnati Chinese Chamber of Commerce will host a business luncheon at our Chamber Office on the subject “Tariffs Impacts & Counter Measures” to explain the impact of recent and possible future tariffs on various goods and services between the US and foreign countries, and to explore possible counter measures that local businesses and multinational companies could resort to in order to offset the impact.

At this event, we will be discussing the following questions:

  • Impact on Trade – Can these measures offset trade imbalance or make it worse?
  • Impact on Job Market – Will the tariffs measures bring jobs back or save jobs in the US?
  • Impact on FDI – Will these measures bring more FDI to the US or scare them away?
  • Impact on Company Bottom Lines – With raw materials cost rising on average 15-25%, how will that affect your company’s bottom line?
  • Counter Measures by Federal, State and Local Legislation – What if anything, can the Congress do to stop trade wars from happening? What are some of the legislative measures the State and Local governments can do?
  • Counter Measures by WTO – What are some of the complaints that have been filed with WTO and what are the likely outcomes and their impact?
  • Counter Measures by Individual Companies – What can be done at the micro level for businesses to get around these trade tariffs and maintain their bottom lines and customer satisfaction?
  • Bright Side Stories – How to survive the trade war and come out winning?

As always, lunch buffet catered by some of the region’s best Chinese restaurants will be provided at this event.
