第二届”中美物流会议”举办通知
本届主题:强化中美供应链,助推经济早复苏

2009年是中美建交三十周年,是中国政府通过物流行业的调整振兴规划之年,是中国政府决定将上海建设成为具有全球航运资源配置能力的国际航运中心批准之年。三十年前,邓小平先生踏上太平洋彼岸,对美国进行了国事访问,两国关系从此揭开了新的篇章。两国政府随后签署了《中美贸易协定》,中美通航也于同年启动。

运输与物流作为中美服务贸易的重要组成部分,受到中美两国政府的高度关注。2007年7月首届中美物流会议在北京召开并获得巨大成功。中美物流会议是美国联邦运输部和美国联邦商务部目前在中国境内唯一联合支持的物流会议,并且得到美国驻华大使馆、美中贸易全国委员会、中国美国商会等机构的大力支持。

Strengthening the US-China supply chain, Working in partnership towards recovery

Date: Sept. 10-11, 2009              Location: Shanghai North Bund, China

In 2007 when the first Sino-American Logistics Conference was held in Beijing, the global economy was booming and the challenge then was building capacity to deal with the ever increasing volume of goods moving between the two countries.
The current challenge is very different. The manufacturing sectors, distribution, warehousing industries and every mode of transportation are experiencing major declines. In this economic downturn the entire supply chain on both sides of the ocean has been impacted. Both government and industry need to take a proactive role taking cost and inefficiencies out of the system, from source to consumer.
This is a critical time for US and China to come together at the 2009 Sino-American Logistics Conference in Shanghai, China on September 10-11 to build partnerships strengthening this vital supply chain.
The 2009 Sino-American Logistics Conference (SALCE) will bring senior government officials and industry leaders together for 2 days to participate in high-level dialogues, share strategies and discuss pressing issues leading to economic recovery.
