Panel Discussion: Women’s Entrepreneurship and its Impact on Chinese Economic Growth, March 8, 2017

To honor International Women’s Day, US Embassy Beijing hosted a panel of prominent business women who shared their experiences and offered insight and strategies during an interactive discussion with entrepreneurs, finance industry professionals, and students.  Women’s economic advancement is a priority for the United States. Bolstering women’s economic participation creates a multiplier effect since women tend to re-invest upwards of 90% of their income back into their families and their communities! Not only does this have a positive effect in a woman’s immediate community, but it also boosts her country’s overall competitiveness and prosperity.
