A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry.

Think Asia, Think Hong Kong
Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and supported by over 30 major US business/industry associations, the "Think Asia, Think Hong Kong" symposium seeks to encourage and facilitate US companies to diversify their business to Asia and meet potential partners or investors in a strategic, effective and efficient way.
As Asia continues to grow in more ways and more places, US companies may benefit from identifying, even redefining, the most appropriate strategic approach for tapping extant and emerging opportunities in Asia, including the Chinese regional markets. In their ongoing quest for international success, US businesses, especially SMEs, are finding that Hong Kong, Asia’s top international trade and financial center, is able to strengthen and even fast-track their efforts.
Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and supported by over 30 major US business/industry associations, the "Think Asia, Think Hong Kong" symposium is the largest Hong Kong/Asia-US event ever to take place in the Midwest.
