Building on our Successful Trade Mission

What we were able to accomplish in our 2018 China Trade Mission were incredible. In as little as 17 days, the Chinese Chamber trade delegation visited 11 cities with 145 million population in total and 2.65 trillion USD in GDP. We came back with two signed agreement to build friendship cities relationship between Cincinnati and Chongqing, and West Chester and Jiaozhou. Subsequently, the Mayor of Chongqing, Mr. Tang Liangzhi, came to visit Cincinnati on May 24, 2019. Mayor Cranley received the delegation in his office and received a letter of invitation from Mr. Tang to attend the Smart China Expo, held in Chongqing from August 26 to 29.

The Chinese Chamber once again took on the responsibility to organize Midwestern businesses to go exhibit at the Smart China Expo. While the Expo itself is little known to many, it is a very high level expo co-organize by the top state-level ministries in China, such as the Ministry of Science & Technology, the Ministry of Industries and Information Technologies and the State Academy of Science, etc. It aims to promote trade and technological advancements in emerging industries such as big data, smart cities, artificial intelligence, smart grid, smart homes, smart driving, as well as more conventional industries such as precision and advanced manufacturing and materials. Applications of such technological advancements can be used for consumer and industrial segments and are considered in high demand for the China market in the years to come.

Midwestern businesses in the US can benefit from exhibiting at this expo and engaging in dialogues with business partners and professionals attending the expo. The Chinese Chamber has secured a booth designated to the Midwestern Regional with 1500 square feet at the Expo.

Give us a shout if you are interested in joining our delegation

We’re happy to announce that REDI Cincinnati has sponsored the expo once again and we welcome Midwestern businesses to contact us for opportunities to collaborate at this expo.

The Chinese Chamber has done such a great job, we now have businesses from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and several other Midwestern states joining the chamber. In a recent visit to Pittsburgh, Executive Director Leo Chan reached an agreement with the Pittsburgh team to launch a local chapter.
