As a proud sponsor of The ABC Group’s Strategic Sourcing Forum in Chicago, Foley cordially invites you to attend as our special guest. The event will focus squarely on the challenges facing SME importers from China. The Strategic Sourcing Forum will bring together business leaders and academics to discuss and better understand how to approach and answer the question, "How can I become more profitable in China?"

To accomplish this, The ABC Group has assembled a panel of speakers from academic and private sector backgrounds to provide actionable insight into the complex business landscape in China.

One of those speakers is Foley’s own Julie Lee, a partner in our International and Taxation Practices and Automotive and Energy Industry Teams. She will be presenting “Top Ten Considerations for Negotiating Enforceable Contracts With a Chinese Company” from 12:35 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. During the presentation, she will discuss cultural differences in negotiations, special considerations in dealing with state-owned enterprises, cross-border dispute resolution issues, and certain mandatory provisions of Chinese law that may impact contract negotiations.

Other topics to be addressed during the event include an essential update on recent developments impacting trade with China, a discussion about increasing efficiency and predictability across your entire procurement organization in China, an overview of supply-chain financing options for mid-sized businesses, and insights into why China could play a role in your future business strategy and, if so, how you can execute your plan in this massive country.

We invite you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to hear Julie present, as well as to gain valuable insight into the strategic opportunities available for U.S. businesses in China.
