What happens in the United States has significant ramifications for the world and the international business community. That is why it is important for business executives to develop a deeper understanding of Washington, the dynamics of its major players, the structure of the different branches of government, and how they intersect to shape US policy decisions.

AmCham is pleased to partner with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)—the leading global policy think tank in the US— for a customized, three-month long executive education program. Twice a month, from 8:30-10:00am Hong Kong time, AmCham will host world-class scholars from CSIS for an insider's look at the players, processes, and priorities driving decision-making in Washington and their implications for Hong Kong.

AmCham X CSIS Executive Education will conduct eight seminar-style Zoom conferences that allow participants to dive deep with senior subject matter experts on pressing topics relevant to today's global business leaders.
