The US-China Business Council (USCBC) supports a strong, mutually beneficial commercial relationship with China. The relationship has made many positive strides over the past three decades, thanks to the collaborative work of the governments, business communities, and other stakeholders in both countries.
USCBC's board of directors first issued a priorities statement in February 2012. Progress has been made on a number of the statement's recommendations. More work needs to be done on several other issues highlighted in that statement, and new issues have arisen that require the attention of both governments in order to fully develop commercial ties, tackle unresolved issues, and bring greater benefit to each country's economy, companies, employees, farmers, and consumers.
