To all relevant enterprises:

In order to promote economic and trade exchanges between Chinese provinces and American states under the framework of the China-US provincial and state economic and trade cooperation mechanism, to deepen the understanding of the key areas of cooperation and investment environment of relevant American states towards China, and to explore the path of China-US economic and trade cooperation under the current situation, we aim to develop pragmatic business opportunities for Chinese and American companies in key areas.

According to the annual key work arrangement of the China-US Joint Working Group on Trade and Investment Cooperation between Chinese provinces and the State of California (referred to as the "Working Group"), and with the guidance of the Ministry of Commerce and the support of the Economic and Commercial Counselor's Office of the Chinese Embassy in the United States, the Secretariat of the Working Group of CCCME, will organize member provinces, cities and key enterprises to visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, North Carolina (or New York) and other related cities in the United States for economic and trade promotion activities in late May 2023.

Since the establishment of the working group, both China and the United States have worked together to promote practical achievements in multiple key areas for Chinese and American companies through extensive contacts, mutual visits, joint activities, and information exchanges. This year, the "China-California Economic and Trade Forum", jointly organized by the Chinese Secretariat, the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products, the Southern California Secretariat Los Angeles Regional Export Commission, the Northern California Secretariat San Francisco Bay Area Commission, the Jiangsu Provincial Department of Commerce, and the Los Angeles branch of the China General Chamber of Commerce USA, and hosted by the Chinese Consulate General in Los Angeles and the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), is scheduled to be held on May 22nd in Los Angeles. This forum is the first continuation of the "China-California Economic and Trade Forum" brand activity after the epidemic, and has received high attention from both China and the United States. Senior officials of the California government will be invited to attend the event. The one-day forum is expected to focus on four main themes: green development, e-commerce, agricultural product trade, and two-way investment opportunities. At the same time, in order to provide Chinese companies with ample opportunities to tap into the US market, the working group plans to organize enterprises to visit cities such as San Francisco, North Carolina (or New York) to visit local companies, meet with relevant trade and investment promotion agencies, and conduct related docking activities in areas such as economic and trade investment, green and low-carbon, energy conservation, and environmental protection.
