The Harvard Business School is a Platinum Sponsor of the following event celebrating 100 years of American business in China.


AmCham Shanghai has been forging stronger U.S.-China commercial ties since 1915. The landscape has changed dramatically over the past 100 years and will continue to evolve. A gala dinner October 28 will celebrate this milestone, and at a one-day forum October 29, we will feature a range of influencers - from corporate executives and civic leaders to disruptive entrepreneurs and economists - who will explore the nature of doing business in China and what to expect in the future.

The 100th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Forum are the highlight events of our centenary and an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of American companies to China's growth and the future role of the American business community in China.
