Economic transformation in both the U.S. and China has created winners and losers in its respective society. While some regions are thriving, others have struggled. In this joint event organized by LRCCS, USHCA, and Taubman, we have invited the leading experts on shrinking cities to explore the lessons learned from the post-industrial shrinking cities in both the U.S. and China and how both countries are learning to help the communities that are left behind in the face of technology and global changes.
Business success depends on numerous factors, and those factors can change when interacting with foreign markets. When looking to begin business or expand your current business in China, traditional methods used in the U.S. may not be well-suited to Chinese markets. So, what are the basics of successful business in and with China today? How can you get involved in the ever-growing and expanding sectors available in the country? Where do you get started?
Thank you Ambassador Cui!
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.
On June 22nd, 2021, U.S. Heartland China Association (USHCA) leaders and guests spoke with future leaders in the International Affairs Class at Missouri Girls State. The class, led by instructor Sydney Montague, a participant of the Missouri Girls State’s Delegation to China organized by USHCA a few years back, covers a variety of topics including: global citizenship, methods for engaging in U.S. foreign policy, and the importance of learning about different global cultures – ideas fundamental to USHCA’s mission.
