The inaugural meeting was attended by representatives from 22 Chinese enterprises in Midwestern United States. The president of Wanxiang America Corporation, Pin Ni chaired the meeting.
According to Chairman Ni, 20 years ago, you could hardly find any Chinese enterprises in Chicago. Yet within this two decades, the development of Chinese economy is on par with the substantial improvements in China – U.S. relationship. In fact, Chinese enterprises could seize lots of opportunities in the States if they fully exploit their comparative advantages, which could further benefit bilateral relations.

Chinese enterprises will have a broader landscape for development in the U.S. due to continuous consolidation of China – U.S. trade relations. As he remarked.
