On October 18th, AmCham Shanghai is holding a SME Conference in Shanghai at the Wanda Reign on the Bund. This conference has been designed to help U.S. and other foreign Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) capitalize on otherwise untapped investment opportunities to grow and expand their businesses in China.
The conference will feature 20 different speakers who will deliver remarks in a variety of styles including keynote speeches, training sessions and panel Q&A’s. AmCham Shanghai is pleased to have its SME Conference’s opening remarks delivered by its President, Kenneth Jarrett. The conference will focus on educating small and medium enterprises on how to take advantage of untapped investment in new booming industries in China and identify the right local partners to maximize their profits and benefits, learning to better navigate the Chinese regulatory environment.
Small and Medium Enterprises operating in China are generally positive about the financial performance and business outlook. In recent years, according to AmCham Shanghai’s annual SME Challenges Survey, (A poll identifying the opportunities and challenges faced by SMEs in China), smaller U.S. companies can succeed in China so long as they adjust their approach to a new and different market, while also accepting that some factors of doing business will inevitably be unknown.
