U.S. Chamber of Commerce & Trade Roots

” … From its headquarters near the White House, the Chamber maintains a professional staff of more than 300 of the nation’s top policy experts, lobbyists, lawyers, and communicators. The Washington staff is supported by seven regional offices around the country; an office in Brussels; an on-the-ground presence in China; and a network of grassroots business activists.”

I attended a program in St. Louis on October 2, 2008, by the U.S. Chamber on China Business 2008: Expanding Opportunties for U.S. Companies. Mr. Xie Feng, Minister & DCM of the Chinese Embassy in the U.S., spoke on “The Big Idea,” i.e., establishing St. Louis as the US Mid-West air hub for trade with China, and he gives the idea two thumbs up!
