Carly Ramsey is a regulatory risk specialist with a decade of experience in China advising multinationals how to engage government in order to mitigate the commercial impact of policies that restrict growth. She leads many of Control Risks’ Asia-Pacific government affairs, government relations and stakeholder engagement advisory projects.


Examples of Carly’s work includes:
  • Developed and executed a government relations strategy for a leading global financial services firm that helped avert a China central bank regulation that would have severely impacted both the company’s China and global operations. The project built advocates from other Chinese government ministries, academia, Chinese and international media, global business, and inserted the issue into US-China bilateral negotiations.
  • Explained the business impact to a leading life sciences company of the Chinese government’s innovation goals, utilising analysis of published central and local government innovation policies and funding, extensive outreach with government officials and academics directly involved in innovation policy development, and interviews with Chinese and foreign executives regarding the impact of innovation policies and programs on their business. 
  • Provided ongoing government relations strategy and execution for a US healthcare trade association, whose members’ China operations where under significant pressure from the Chinese government. The project sought support from untraditional sources, including influential Chinese CEOs, bringing them together with US CEOs to discuss and strategise how to tackle issues of mutual interest.
  • Advised a leading manufacturer on the security and regulatory risks of transporting high-value goods within China.


    Prior to joining Control Risks, Carly was an Associate Director with APCO Worldwide, where she lead the Greater China healthcare team to provide corporate advisory, government relations, and corporate communications strategy and execution services to major multinationals, trade associations, and governments. She has a master’s degree in foreign policy and international security from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Western Ontario.
