Amid dynamic developments in Washington DC and US-China trade, AmCham's 2019 Washington Doorknock will be an important opportunity to highlight American business interests and values in Asia from the perspective of Hong Kong.

Key Objectives

  • To understand US global and regional trade policies and priorities under the Trump administration
