AmCham South China and Stanford University to Cooperate on
Dissemination of Accurate and Unbiassed Research on China’s Economy
“No evidence of net U.S. Job losses resulting from China shock”
November 18, 2021 – Guangzhou, China. Finding accurate and unbiased research on China’s economy has become a difficult and daunting task for even the most experienced researchers. Therefore, the American Chamber of Commerce in South China (AmCham South China) has reached a cooperation agreement with the Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions (SCCEI) to disseminate up-to-date fact-based research conducted by the Center in a timely fashion to interested parties in China, US, and around the world. AmCham South China expects to release one new China Brief produced by SCCEI every two weeks.
The Stanford Center’s two China Briefs being released here are Did “China Shock” Cause Widespread Job Losses in the U.S.?, which indicates “No evidence of net U.S. Job losses resulting from China shock” and Rise of Robots in China, which shows China leads all other countries in robot installation by a wide margin.

These and all future China Briefs, as well as other publications may be downloaded free of charge from AmCham South China website at www.amcham-southchina.org
The Center’s research is performed under the direction of world- renowned scholars and highly respected economists, Scott Rozelle and Hongbin Li.
“Our cooperation with Stanford Center on China’s Economy and Institutions marks another giant step in helping U.S. and Chinese stakeholders from business, government, academia and media gain access to highly valuable, accurate and untainted factual information which will aid them in making informed decisions” said Harley Seyedin, President of AmCham South China.
AmCham South China, established 26 years ago in 1995 and accredited by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., is an independent Chamber representing over 2,300 members which account for nearly 40% of all U.S.-China business, trade and investments.
The new information dissemination effort with the Stanford Center is in addition to AmCham South China’s own numerous publications. These publications include an exhaustively researched quantitative annual Special Report on the State of Business in South China and a qualitative 600+ page bi-lingual White Paper on the Business Environment in China. The two annual book sized reports are edited by Schumann Endowed Professor and Chair of the Mercer University Department of Journalism and Media Studies Jay Black. The 2022 White Paper and 2022 Special Report will be released at the end of February 2022. AmCham South China also publishes the monthly 60+ page widely distributed South China Business Journal as well as many other special reports, surveys and policy papers.
