The Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), in partnership with the National Association of Manufacturers, are pleased to announce the third annual U.S.-China High Technology Working Group (HTWG) Public-Private Sector Dialogue on Monday, September 26, 2011.
The U.S.-China High Technology Working Group was established to facilitate high-technology exports to civilian end-users in China, in accordance with U.S. export control requirements. In this public-private HTWG event, participants will focus on how to effectively use the export control system to conduct high tech trade in commercial products to civil end-users for civil end-uses. U.S. and Chinese industry participants will then provide real-world examples of success in high tech trade in the aerospace and semiconductor sectors, including how comprehensive compliance programs contribute to this success. This all-day event will provide ample opportunity for two-way dialogue.
The principal goals of this dialogue are for the United States and China to provide an update on their export control policies and practices, to offer an opportunity for U.S. and Chinese companies to interact directly on these issues, and to learn from individual U.S. and Chinese exporters about the ways in which the two governments can support high technology trade for civilian end-uses.
