Join us with San Francisco Business Times, Nixon Peabody LLP, Moss Adams Careers, Global SF, Bay Area Council and Manex Consulting for a conversation on the topic of "Bridge from China".

The economic relationship between China and the United States is the most critically important one for both countries and may be the most integral commercial linkage in the world. The headlines and cable news chyrons display the reality that this relationship is under stress. However, despite diplomatic, trade, and macroeconomic friction – there is still considerable activity between the 1st and 2nd largest economies, especially in the Bay Area. San Francisco and the larger region has long been a hub of cross-border trade and investment. What is happening now and how can companies doing business with and in China navigate the current environment and plan for the future? Our panel of experts will provide both their thoughts on strategy and also practical advice to succeed despite the turbulence.

The country will bolster its oilseed self-sufficiency by increasing soybean production to 23 million tonnes by 2025, from 16.4 million tonnes in 2021, according to the 14th five-year plan on crop farming that was issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) on Thursday.
