TN-China Network is sharing another MFGDay special event:

Presentation on Manufacturing in China

MFGDay is an initiative of The Manufacturing Institute, with the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association as a founding partner.

The MFGDay is created to inspire the next generation to consider careers in modern manufacturing through a series of focused events to promote manufacturing to students, parents and educators on the first Friday of October and continuing throughout the rest of the month. 

Minimize Risk, Maximize Growth: How US Companies Can Still Thrive in China Presenting on the ground manufacturing experience 

The news headlines are true: COVID-related travel restrictions have prevented short term business visits to China, many US companies are seeking to diversify their supply chains to other countries, and some are looking to exit their China investments altogether. However, this is not the complete picture. Lower valuation multiples for acquisitions, lower employee turnover rates and lower wage growth are less talked about - and all point to opportunities for the foreign investor and business owner in China.

Over the past 35 years, PRI has owned and operated more than 30 companies in China, mostly in manufacturing.

TN-China Network brings you this on-the-ground perspective on how to minimize risk, navigate challenges and seize growth opportunities in China.

Speaker: Dwight Nordstrom. PRI Chairman, long time resident of Beijing, China, visiting Chattanooga!

U. S. perspectives from Nolan Howell, Director of International Soft Surfaces at Shaw Industries.  Mr. Howell was responsible for setting up Shaw's China factories and its current operation.

TN-China board member and Editor in Chief of The China Project (formerly SupChina) will facilitate the Q/A.

This event is now only virtual!!!
