Also discussed will be multitude of regulatory and operational challenges that Canadian and other western MNCs face in China; from stricter auditing and zoning requirements to rapidly rising costs and increasing domestic competition. Tariffs are threatening margins, forcing companies to decide between incurring higher costs and passing them along to consumers. The impact on global and regional supply chains will become more apparent in the year ahead.

John Evans will provide Canadian and other western MNCs with practical advice and solutions for dealing with the trade war’s negative impact on their China operations and will offer alternative strategies for continued growth in Asia and other markets as the trade conflict drags on.
