Multi-Industry Chinese Trade Delegation to Visit California in Early May

A trade delegation of over 100 Chinese business executives will be coming to Los Angeles for a California-China Business Summit being hosted as part of CHINAWEEK on May 9th.

The delegation, comprised of government officials in charge of trade and investment promotion and senior business executives from the agriculture, clean-tech, e-commerce, infrastructure, and other sectors, is the biggest of its kind organized by the China Provinces -- California Joint Working Group on Trade and Investment Cooperation, a network established with China's Ministry of Commerce and six provinces during California Governor Jerry Brown's 2013 trade mission to Beijing.

This visit by the Chinese businesses presents good opportunities for California manufacturers, small and medium sized businesses, exporters and farmers, as well as for infrastructure planners and builders, to explore business opportunities and partners.

Although recruitment for the delegation is still in process, it is very likely that businesses from all he working group including, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shandong, Hebei, Shanghai, Chongqing, and Inner Mongolia, as well as the non-member province Zhejiang, will join the trade delegation. These provinces represent the most economically developed regions in China.

Information from early-bird members of the delegation indicates that the executives are looking forward to buying from and/or selling to California companies, investing in California and/or showcasing investment projects in China, seeking technical cooperation partners and project bidding opportunities, as well as e-commerce-related branding, warehousing and logistics partners, etc.

The final list of delegation members is estimated around 150, according to the China Chamber of Commmerce for the Import and Export of Machinery and Electronics, (CCCME), which serves as the secretariat for the working group on the Chinese side.

Participants from both Southern and Northern California will attend, with support from the California Governor's Office for Business and Economic Development (which administers the working group for the state of California), and the California secretriats: the Los Angeles Area Regional Export Council (a/k/a "LARExC") for Southern California, and the Bay Area Council for Norhern California.

Last year, the summit attracted over 350 business and government representatives, including 130 from China and about 220 from Southern California. California Governor Jerry Brwon and Chinese Consul General Liu Jian addressed the audience.

This year, the California-China Business Summit will have four breakout sessions on the subjects of clean-tech, agriculture, infrastructure, and e-commerce. In addition, there will be a luncheon plenary session on cross-border investment. Each breakout session will feature a panel discussion, an FDI project presentation, and a match-making session.
