2.4 million jobs in the United States are dependent upon trade with China. Michigan exports make up roughly 30,000 of those jobs. As one of the most globally connected states, this is important. Sponsored by the MSU International Business Center, the Oct. 20 Lansing Economic Club will feature Craig Allen, president, US-China Business Council. Allen will discuss the future of the relationship between the U.S. and China, how the largest U.S. firms are working in China to build strategies to move forward, and the effects of “decoupling” the two economies. The virtual event will be held from 11 a.m. to noon.
