2021 U.S. - China Agriculture Roundtable
Agriculture is more than just about trade and business. It is the bedrock of a healthy U.S.-China relationship.
It is imperative that we support continued dialogue and collaboration in order to build a healthy U.S.-China relationship around agriculture and beyond.

In looking back four decades, it is clear that the American heartland played a central role in building a strong and mutually beneficial relationship between China and the United States, and particularly with senior-most Chinese leaders.
Now, after several years of turbulence in government-to-government relations, the key to restoring stability in the US – China relationship may once again be found in middle America rather than national capitals. As we enter a new political period, the US Heartland China Association is extremely well positioned to play a significant catalytic role in restoring and rebuilding the U.S. – China bilateral relationship.
