Paul Clifford – Chinese companies and forming joint ventures

Paul G. Clifford is the author of The China Paradox: At the Front Line of Economic Transformation and non-resident Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School. He recently gave a talk at AmCham Shanghai on Chinese company organization and strategy, based on years of consulting work with both Chinese state-owned and private firms. We asked him about how much autonomy Chinese companies are given, what foreign companies should keep in mind when engaging with Chinese companies to set up joint ventures, and more.


AMChamThe American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai known as the "Voice of American Business" in China, was founded in 1915. AmCham Shanghai was the third American Chamber established outside the United States, and now has 3,000 members from 1,500 companies. As a non-profit, non-partisan business organization, AmCham Shanghai is committed to the principles of free trade, open markets, private enterprise and the unrestricted flow of information.

The vision of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai is to be the leading international business association in China, while our mission is to enable the success of our members and strengthen U.S.-China commercial ties through our role as a not-for-profit service provider of high quality business resources and support, policy advocacy and relationship-building opportunities.
