The California-China Office of Trade and Investment (CTO) can play an important role in connecting California clean technology companies with business opportunities across the Pacific, according to Matthew Rodriguez, Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency, and Robert Weisenmiller, Chair of the California Energy Commission.

At a sold-out roundtable discussion this week hosted by Bay Area Council member Bingham McCutchen, the two leaders encouraged companies to connect with the CTO to identify and realize new business opportunities. The Bay Area Council operates the trade office in partnership with the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development.

With multiple agreements in place between California and China on air quality, carbon emissions, and energy efficiency, Rodriguez and Weisenmiller said the framework is in place for companies to actively engage in developing and deploying the environmental technologies that will provide solutions to China’s ecological challenges.To engage with the California-China Office of Trade and Investment, please visit or email
