What’s at Stake for Business

  • China has the world’s second largest GDP and is a critical player in the world economy.
  • The Chinese and American economies are strongly intertwined as China is the United States’ second largest trading partner.
  • It is important to engage with the OECD on China because it is well placed to advise China on its
    reform agenda.

Current Priorities

  • Engage U.S. business in government to government processes, including the U.S.-China Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) and the Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED).
  • Strongly support the current work on the U.S.-China Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT).
  • Encourage China’s accession to and engagement with the OECD.
  • Monitor legislative and regulatory developments in the National People’s Congress and the central government in China.

USCIB at Work

USCIB is uniquely positioned to advocate on behalf of our members on important China-related developments:

  • At the OECD, where we work with BIAC to provide input to the OECD Informal Reflection Group on China on issues regarding responsible business conduct, investment, regulatory interventions, national treatment, innovation, agriculture, environment and state-owned enterprises. Through BIAC, USCIB also contributes to the OECD Economic Outlook on China as well as other initiatives regarding OECD-China engagement.
  • In Washington, specifically with USTR and the U.S. government interagency Trade Policy Staff Committee, where we advocate U.S. business views on China’s progress toward implementing its WTO accession obligations.
  • With our sister business organizations in China, the China Chamber of International Commerce (ICC China) and the China Enterprise Confederation (the Chinese members of IOE), where we address top issues facing U.S. companies engaged in trade and investment with China.

Who We Are

The USCIB China Committee is composed of USCIB member companies representing a range of business and industry sectors.   Advocacy priorities are determined that reflect consensus among the members.


The Committee provides a forum for business representatives, U.S. government officials and China experts from multilateral institutions to advance projects in high priority areas to the U.S. business community.  The Committee’s advocacy primarily targets:

  • The OECD
  • The U.S. government
  • Business organizations in China
