Remote discussion with Mr. Kyle Sullivan from the Crumpton Group

On April 29, Keidanren USA hosted a remote discussion with Mr. Kyle Sullivan from the Crumpton Group to discuss China’s economic recovery through the COVID crisis and how that could affect your companies.

In China, government officials have signaled victory over the virus while state media has been releasing data about work resumption rates to underscore that an economic resurgence is underway. Yet general press reporting and official statistics are insufficient and inaccurate in providing foreign companies with early warning triggers. Companies require real-time, on-the-ground intelligence that cuts through the noise and enables key stakeholders to make informed decisions about their investment positions and strategies.

In this remote discussion, Mr. Sullivan provided with intelligence and market analysis about the Chinese economic recovery and the future of Belt and Road projects.
