Business success depends on numerous factors, and those factors can change when interacting with foreign markets.

Ambassador Cui Tiankai, China’s top diplomatic representative to the US for the last eight years, departed Washington in late June in time to return home for the centennial anniversary celebration of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party on July 1.
It was during a succession of events in the Heartland, and in particular in my home state of Iowa, that I had a number of opportunities to interact with Ambassador Cui and to join in promoting “citizen diplomacy” efforts to enhance friendly relations between the Chinese and American peoples.
“We are thrilled that both the Ford Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation have awarded our organization grants to maintain the momentum of our important work building bridges and understanding between the American Heartland and China,” Bob Holden, former Governor of Missouri, Chairman and CEO of the United States Heartland China Association (USHCA) announced.
