U.S.-China Educational Exchange: Preparing for Reopening

U.S.-China Educational Exchanges have brought tremendous benefits to both countries in the past four decades. But growing geopolitical tension and the pandemic have upended traditional models of exchange in many ways.

USHCA Leadership’s Outlook for 2022 – Mayor Brainard

As Mayor of Carmel, Indiana, a city with more than 130 corporate headquarters – many of them associated with international corporations – I was proud to enter into an official partnership with the City of Xiangyang, Hubei as our new Sister City in June of 2012.

The Carmel-Xiangyang Sister City initiative was implemented to create more educational, cultural and economic exchange opportunities between our two cities. Although we are separated by distance and oceans, we share a common desire to learn from each other through cultural exchanges and business partnerships.

USHCA Leadership’s Outlook for 2022 – Amb. Quinn

As we begin the year 2022, I am focused on the fact that February 15 – 16 will mark the 10th anniversary of then Vice President Xi Jinping’s historic return to the American Heartland.

During that trip, President Xi first visited the home of Sarah Lande in Muscatine, Iowa, one of the individuals who had welcomed him in 1985 when, as a county level official from Hebei Province, he made his first visit to the United States.

Vice President Xi then came to Des Moines for a “state dinner” at the magnificent Iowa State Capitol hosted by Governor (and future Ambassador to China) Terry Branstad.
