The event, co-organized by the China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (USCC), is designed to further dialogue between US companies and Chinese government officials. Dr. Agwunobi and other U.S. business leaders met with Premier Li Keqiang, as well as other opinion leaders during the meetings.
Separately, Agwunobi met with key leaders from the China Nutrition and Health Food Association (CNHFA), where he detailed the Company’s long-term investment strategy for China and the Company’s commitment to further developing both the nutrition and direct selling industries in China.
“Herbalife Nutrition’s mission, to help people live healthy active lifestyles through balanced nutrition and exercise, is a mission that is fully aligned with China’s national health strategy. With China’s demand for health products and services steadily increasing, Herbalife Nutrition is committed to actively working with the Chinese government to help advance the government’s interests in ensuring a healthier population in China,” said Agwunobi.
