The Long Institute joins the 18th U.S.-China Legal Exchange, co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Commerce and China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM).  The U.S.-China Legal Exchange is a unique forum that allows the U.S. business, legal, and academic communities in three U.S. cities to hear directly from Chinese officials about new and important developments in China’s commercial legal and regulatory landscape.  High-level government officials from China, led by Assistant Minister of Commerce Zhang Xiangchen, will present to public audiences in Washington, DC, Boston, MA, and Orange County, CA for a full day on two areas of China’s commercial law regime:

  • Chinese Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Law; and
  • Legal Aspects of Entrepreneurship in China, including Private Equity and Venture Capital

U.S. company representatives, lawyers, academics, local and state government officials, students, and other interested persons are invited to attend the Legal Exchange and participate in discussions on these topics with Chinese government officials and experts from the United States.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Should you or your organization be interested in sponsoring the 2013 U.S.-China Legal Exchange, please contact Brett Gerson, Attorney-Advisor, Office of the Chief Counsel for International Commerce, at or (202) 482-5595.
