After Dinner Presentation

ROI, China: Opportunity and Risk Mitigation in the Era of Xi Jinping

As China's relations with the U.S., Japan, and other near neighbors come under increasing political pressure, risk for American firms in China is on the rise.  Americans there feel "less welcomed," according to the 2016 U.S. - China Business Council's authoritative annual survey.  Moreover, foreign investment appears to be cooling off as the Chinese economy permanently shifts away from double-digit growth.
 
Meanwhile, stricter regulations and a seemingly desperate anti-spy campaign by Chinese security agencies may have led to detentions of foreigners, including the recent beating by PRC State Security agents of an American diplomat.
 
Nonetheless, China remains a compelling international business priority.   Though there is clearly heightened risk in China for American and other foreign business people, there are also clear steps that firms can take to mitigate risk.


SPEAKER: 

Matthew Brazil, Ph.D. is a non-resident Fellow at The Jamestown Foundation. He worked in Asia for over 20 years as a soldier, US diplomat, and corporate security manager.  He is currently the San Francisco Bay Area representative of I-OnAsia, the Hong Kong business security firm. With Peter Mattis, he is the co-author of a work on Chinese intelligence operations to be published in 2018 by the Naval Institute Press.
