About the US-China Business Council

Help Shape the World's Most Important Relationship

The US-China Business Council (USCBC) is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of over 280 American companies that do business with China. Founded in 1973, USCBC has provided unmatched information, advisory, advocacy, and program services to its members for over four decades. Through its offices in Washington, DC, Beijing, and Shanghai, USCBC is uniquely positioned to serve its members' interests in the United States and China. 

USCBC's mission is to expand the US-China commercial relationship to the benefit of its membership and, more broadly, the US economy. It favors constructive, results-oriented engagement with China to eliminate trade and investment barriers and develop a rules-based commercial environment that is predictable and transparent. Among USCBC's members are many large and well-known US corporations, though smaller companies and professional services firms make up a substantial portion of the overall membership.  

In recent years, USCBC has been honored to host events for President Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang, Vice President Wang Qishan, Vice Premier Liu He, Vice Premier Hu Chunhua, then-Vice Premier Wang Yang, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Chinese ambassadors to the United States, ministers, and other distinguished guests from central and provincial Chinese government entities. 

USCBC has also organized events and meetings featuring then-Vice President Joe Biden; Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo; Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen; former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; former Treasury Secretaries Timothy Geithner, Jacob Lew, and Steven Mnuchin; former Commerce Secretaries Penny Pritzker and Wilbur Ross; US Ambassador to China Nick Burns; former US Ambassador to China Terry Branstad; former Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd; and other senior officials. In addition, USCBC regularly meets with key members of Congress and specialists on US-China affairs from various executive agencies and the think tank community.  

In early 2021, the USCBC launched a US subnational initiative dedicated to growing support for trade with China at the state and local levels. By publishing company stories and holding events with local partners, the initiative seeks to highlight the tangible benefits of US-China trade and the impacts of US government policies like tariffs on small- and medium-sized enterprises and local communities.
