Results from AmCham Shanghai’s 2016 China Business Climate Survey
Ron Klein | Kenneth Jarrett

AmCham Shanghai’s China Business Climate Survey, one of the longest running surveys of U.S. business in China, reflects the views and insights of AmCham Shanghai member companies, based on their considerable experience doing business in China. In this year’s 2016 report, produced in partnership with PWC, MNCs in China continue to report profits and revenue growth but at lower levels than were previously projected. In addition, MNCs in China are adjusting downward their future forecasts and investment footprint in response to China's slowing economic growth.
