Programs Asia Trade Mission

​Since 2005, USPAACC has been leading successful Trade Missions to China, Taiwan and India—designed to extend friendship, establish strategic connections, strengthen existing relations, promote American products and services, explore opportunities for joint ventures, and source potential suppliers.

Our goal is to strengthen the “global guanxi*,” connecting people with common business interests to establish and reaffirm relationships in a part of the world where personal contacts are very important.

Our future Trade Missions to Asia will continue to provide American businesses new access and comprehensive insight into the dynamic Asian market—including its scale, diversity and potential. Asia is a vibrant gateway to tremendous investment and growth opportunities for American businesses. Consequently, Asia will be viewed as an essential gateway to lucrative opportunities—a portal to enhancing and expanding the reach of American businesses in their quest to compete effectively in today’s global marketplace.
