Last week, USCIB partnered with the U.S. Commercial Service for the Discover Global Markets: Greater China Business Forum, a two-day conference in New York City that gave entrepreneurs opportunities to gain insights and contacts for exporting to the Greater China region, which includes Singapore, Hong Kong, Mongolia and Taiwan, Province of China.
Elizabeth Cafaro, USCIB’s marketing assistant for Carnet and Trade Services, spoke at the conference on a panel about “Utilizing Trade Shows in China.”
At the event, U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Stefan M. Selig said that U.S.-China trade is right on track, and that China is an elite market for U.S. exports, according to CNC TV. Selig also noted that China is the third-largest market for U.S. exports, supporting over 800,000 American jobs, and that facilitating American business engagement with the Greater China market is a high priority.
The conference was part of the U.S. Commercial Service Business Forum Series, and attendees were able to meet one-on-one with U.S. Commercial Service diplomats and obtain the resources necessary to succeed in the Greater China market.
