We are in a challenging environment for U.S.-China cross-border business and investment. Yet many companies are experiencing success in both directions. China has vastly ramped up its outward FDI and is now a top global investor. Which sectors are most favored by Chinese investors? What strategies should companies in target sectors adopt to capitalize on the trends and promote Chinese investment? Do you want to better understand the impact of China's influence on your business? China also remains a key investment destination for U.S. companies seeking growth. How are leading companies approaching China? What are the growth industries for U.S. companies in China? What issues do U.S. companies face when investing in China?
 
The 2014 Woo Conference will provide a forum to learn from and network with successful and influential cross-border investors and business leaders – hear their experiences and lessons learned from engaging in cross-border investment and how they have overcome hurdles that others were unable to overcome. Learn successful strategies for mitigating issues, increasing effectiveness and optimizing operations in facilitating cross-border growth and expansion. From developing cross-border businesses in the U.S. and China to fostering collaborative relationships with relevant stakeholders in both countries, panelists will discuss opportunities and hurdles facing companies and reveal insights into how to successfully engage in East West cross-border investments.
