"Destination China" Join World Trade Center Alaska in China
Hong Kong- Beijing-Shanghai
Aug. 28, 2009
Dear WTCAK Members and Friends of the Center:
China is Alaska's fastest growing, and second largest, trading partner. From seafood to minerals to forest products to technical and other service sector exports, China is increasingly looking to Alaska firms to meet the needs of their rapidly growing economy and population. Last year, exports from Alaska to China reached $733 million, an all-time record high. Is your company taking part in this incredible growth story?
In mid- October, World Trade Center Alaska will lead a trade mission to China. Plan now to join other Alaska business executives, government officials, and civic leaders on an important visit to three major cities: Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. This will be a high-level, high access mission that will enable you not only to gain a first-hand understanding of the opportunities China offers, but also the special opportunity to meet with key American and Chinese trade officials and business executives to learn how your company can benefit from China's unprecedented economic growth.
World Trade Center Alaska has a long and successful track record of conducting trade missions that enable companies to gain new international insights and, very importantly, to generate new business. For the past 21 years, WTCAK has led overseas missions to places like Russia, China, Korea, Europe, and Canada. Participant have come back better informed, with valuable contacts, and leads that have resulted in new business.
This is an exceptional opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge about Alaska's second- largest overseas market and the fastest-growing market for Alaskan commodity and service sector exports. For more information, contact Greg Wolf, the Executive Director of WTCAK, on 907-278-7234.
