Wells Fargo Champion Program.



Yuping Wang Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine (DWT)

Robin Chen Co-Head of the China Desk, Wells Fargo


Join Wells Fargo and TDA for an update on business and investment opportunities with China!


Speakers will address the following topics:

Capital Restrictions Recently, China implemented stricter capital controls which have the potential to impact foreign transactions.

Cyber Security Law China has recently levied new data storage laws, which require all companies located in China to store their data on Chinese servers.

One-Belt-One-Road China’s ongoing One-Belt-One-Road (OBOR) Initiative represents a transcontinental infrastructure development effort that will connect China globally to Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The goal of the OBOR Initiative is to create a major platform for economic cooperation and investment.


The extensive changes to capital controls and China’s cybersecurity law have the potential to exert a very real influence on US and Washington state companies doing business with China.
