September 2010 Trade Mission to China with Governor Schwarzenegger

Posted In:

We would like invite you on an important trip to Shanghai and Hangzhou, China with Governor Schwarzenegger, September 8-13. The Bay Area Council has opened our “Bay Area Business Landing Pad” in Shanghai. A major goal is to expand California employment by giving Bay Area and California companies the opportunity, guidance and connections needed to sell their products and services in China. The relatively anemic economic turnaround in California and the rest of the United States has made accessing the China market critical to our economic recovery. This initiative has become a very big deal in both Shanghai and California – due to its potential job creation and ability to strengthen the ties between our two countries – and we are very pleased that the Governor will be helping us and the state with the China relationship.

This trip will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, meeting with the top government and business leadership of Shanghai, Hangzhou and in some cases the whole of China. This is an opportunity for you and your organization to create new relationships or deepen existing ones with some of the most important decision makers in the fastest growing marketplace on the planet, while helping California during a hard economic time.

Part of our trip will have all of us together, but to extend our reach and maximize the benefit to you, we will also split into subgroups to ensure that you can meet with the top leaders, competitors and potential partners specific to your industry and interests. The Governor will also be bringing three Cabinet Secretaries, which will further extend the potential reach of this delegation in China.

We hope you will join us on this historic trip as we open greater opportunities for trade and investment between California and China in the coming Century of the Pacific.
