High-Level Chinese Banking Delegation Visits
The Bay Area Council on Wednesday hosted a high-level business delegation from China, providing our members a unique opportunity to meet with top decision makers from China’s banking and financial services sector. The meeting came as China explores new direct foreign investment opportunities in California and the U.S. and makes regulatory changes consistent with its emerging presence in foreign markets. Bay Area Council member Visa organized the delegation visit along with Meridian International Center and sponsored Tuesday’s lunch meeting. Bay Area Council members included Wells Fargo, Silicon Valley Bank, Bank of the West, HSBC, KPMG, Deloitte, Heller Manus Architects, Cooper, White, Cooper LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Alston & Bird LLP and Burr, Pilger & Mayer LLP. During their visit, delegation members also participated in an executive management training program provided by Visa at Stanford University. The meeting was one of many the Bay Area Council has hosted and organized this year with Chinese and other foreign delegations to provide our members with new trade and investment opportunities and promote California trade, one of our lead policy priorities.
