WTC Anchorage recently participated in a trade mission to Harbin (China), at the end of February, led by Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz. The mission consisted of a dozen Anchorage business and civic leaders, including Greg Wolf, the Executive Director of WTC Anchorage. During the mission, Wolf and Bruce Bustamante, the President and CEO of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, visited WTC Harbin. They received a tour of the expansive WTC building project and, following the tour, met with WTC Harbin leadership and staff to discuss areas of mutual cooperation. These areas included agriculture, seafood, aviation, tourism, and education. Follow-up visits by both sides are being organized at this time. In January this year, WTC Harbin was a participant at WTC’s Anchorage’s 13th Annual Alaska-China Business Conference.

Wolf was among two dozen West Coast business executives invited to a special dinner event at the end of March. The purpose of the event was to recognize and thank business leaders, from among the five Western states covered by the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco, that are helping to build closer commercial relations with China. Wolf was honored for his nearly two decades of work to promote stronger trade and investment ties between Alaska and China. He also was one of three the honorees who were asked to make remarks at the event.

The executives represent companies and trade organizations of all sizes from the five Western states covered by the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco, namely Northern California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
