Next MCBC Meeting
January 15, 2014
Government / China Business Partnerships
One of our most popular events!
The line between business and government in China is not as clear as it is in the US. To succeed in China, you frequently need the assistance of the US government.
Fortunately you are in luck as there are numerous programs and relationships already in place to help your business thrive. Come join Members and Friends of MCBC at this informative event, as we discuss the many programs that are in the DC area.
