Why China Matters to the Heartland - 2023 Event
January 31, 2022 - Virtual Webinar
On Tuesday, January 31st, USHCA hosted the highly anticipated 2023 launch event for our annual report, Why China Matters to the Heartland. Leaders from across the Heartland region gave presentations, including representatives from Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Ohio, and Kansas.
Each speaker provided insights into a unique aspect of what China means to their own states, communities, and organizations. Some examples include how a Chinese company revitalized a small town, the legacy of a 40-year sister city relationship between St. Louis and Nanjing, as well as how schools in the Heartland have worked to serve their Chinese international students amidst a pandemic and political scrutiny.
