Amid rising tensions over trade restrictions and allegations of cyber attacks, President Xi Jinping recently met with a group of US business executives in Beijing. The Chinese leader has been working with representatives of the US business, strategy and academic communities in an attempt to boost confidence in the face of slowing foreign investment, which hit a 30-year low last year.

As China grapples with political tensions with the US, a slumping housing market and deflation, investors are feeling uncertain about the future. They noted a lack of consistency as China pursues both development and security, leaving them unsure of the risks and benefits of doing business in the country. The structural economic slowdown has prompted executives to reassess their operations in China.

Before the pandemic, President Xi often interacted with executives at events such as the Boao Forum for Asia, often referred to as China’s Davos. However, he is not expected to attend this year’s forum, which began on Tuesday in Hainan. Despite the challenges, US CEOs and executives have been invited to meet with President Xi at various events, demonstrating the importance of maintaining dialogue between the two countries amid rising tensions.
