A Letter from President Dr. Harley Seyedin To AmCham Members

NowShenzhen   |   March 1, 2020


Dear Members,


If you have any difficulty with the restart of your operations please let us know. Our Team has worked hand in hand with Guangdong Department Commerce (DOFCOM), Guangdong Foreign Affairs Office (FAO) and other provincial, city and local governmental agencies. As a result of working together 100% of all difficulties related to restarting of member operations or Chinese visa related issues reported to us have been resolved quickly. Please join me in expressing our thanks to the Chinese officials who have provided us with timely and strong support.


Also, I am delighted that we have had no reports of any of our staff, members or their employees being afflicted with the Novel Coronavirus. This is due to strong and immediate actions taken by the Chinese government, your hard and diligent work and, the fact that a majority of our member companies, working with our Chamber, have had defensive action plans in place for many years.

如果贵公司存在任何关于复工复产/公司运营等问题以及特殊需求,请您联系华南美国商会,发送邮件至[email protected],我们将竭诚为您提供服务与帮助。我相信,在各级政府的支持下,我们共同努力一定能克服我们今天所面临的困难。

Please keep in mind, if your company has any relevant problems with production/operation or demands, feel free to contact AmCham South China and email to [email protected] We stand ready to assist you in any way possible. I am certain that working together, and with Chinese government support at all levels, we will overcome the difficulties we face today.


Please stay diligent and safe.
