US-China Relations After 100 Days

29 June 2021 



Benjamin Kostrzewa, Registered Legal Consultant, Hogan Lovells


US-China Relations After 100 Days: How it Started, How it’s Going, and How it Affects Your Company

With President Biden settling into his Presidency, many had hoped that US-China relations would prove to be less volatile. Is there relief in sight? How will the two countries’ policies affect the global business environment? International trade lawyer and former USG official Ben Kostrzewa will use political cartoons and other imagery to examine the following:

how Washington and Beijing characterise each other’s policies, 
the various legal and regulatory tools at both countries’ disposal, 
how these policies affect global businesses, 
and how to protect your company from regulatory risk.

Details on how to join will be sent via email by 5pm the day before the webinar.
