With more than 150 Chinese delegates set to attend the Select USA Summit in Washington this week, there is plenty of opportunity for the US to attract much sought-after Chinese investment.
Max Baucus, US Ambassador to China, was optimistic in his keynote talk about Washington’s potential role in the greater scheme of the US-China economic relationship.
“As our countries grow and as we combine in many ways, economically and politically, I think it is very important that Select USA is in Washington DC, which symbolizes the strength between our two countries,” said Baucus at a reception for more than 100 Chinese delegates at the Phillips Collection in Washington on Sunday.
“They’re the two largest economies, and in some ways mirror images of each other,” he said. “We have a tremendous opportunity in Washington for mutual benefit, not to mention the benefits that come in the larger geopolitical realm.”
The greater Washington region, in particular, will be playing the role of matchmaker, an often-overlooked region with an abundance of new opportunity.
“Really I think this is a good platform for us to get to know people and to be known,” said Charlie Yao, CEO of Yuhuang Chemical Inc. “Continuing to network is important, but talking to people, and picking up the lessons they’ve learned is also important.”
