In face of evolving US-China relations and Washington's changing sentiment toward Hong Kong, AmCham will be reinstating the annual Doorknock to Washington DC this June, the first in-person doorknock since 2019. Delegates will meet with policy and law makers from the Biden administration, Congressional representatives, and think tank experts to gain on the ground perspective on Washington's trade policies toward Hong Kong and China. This year's advocacy mission will be an important opportunity to highlight the strategic role of Hong Kong, as well as American business interests and values in Asia.

Key Objectives

  • To understand US global and regional trade policies and priorities under the Biden administration
  • To gain a comprehensive knowledge of the Biden administration's Indo-Pacific economic strategy
  • To emphasize Hong Kong's strategic role in sustaining US-China relations, and as a regional platform for tackling other important issues facing American and international business in the Asia-Pacific arena
  • To underscore Hong Kong's value as a center of business excellence, the city's importance as a regional platform for tackling other important issues facing American and international businesses in the Indo Pacific region
  • Other industry-specific issues covering financial services, tax, apparel and footwear, agriculture, and others (open to suggestions)

This high-level delegation will meet with interlocutors from:

  • US Government (e.g. Dept's of State, Commerce, Treasury and US Trade Representative)
  • Congressional offices (e.g. House/Senate Committee for Foreign Relations)
  • Think tanks (e.g. Brookings Institution, CSIS, PIIE)
  • Other important stakeholders (e.g. World Bank)
