Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce


Several Alamo Asian American Chamber of Commerce Board Members attended the “Opportunities for Doing Business in China” presentation held Tuesday, July 14th, and hosted by the International Trade Center at the University of Texas at San Antonio downtown campus.  Invited speakers, Mr. Eric Hsu, Principal Commercial Officer, U.S. Embassy—China and Ms. Li Fan, Senior International Trade Specialist, U.S. Embassy—China, discussed economic development opportunities in several markets throughout Southwestern China and delineated several of the challenges many Chinese are facing currently. 

These challenges include the recent financial crisis and government intervention in the stock exchange to environmental pollution and rapidly diminishing air quality in urban cities.  Both speakers articulated the need to further bolster tourism between our two countries to foster cultural understanding and mentioned that although geopolitically our nations may not see eye to eye, the fact that many Americans visit China and many Chinese visit the United States, on a personal level, many Chinese and Americans do in fact see eye to eye. 

This is the mission of the U.S. Commercial Service.  This event was sponsored by the AAACC and provided an opportunity to bolster our network with the U.S. Commercial Service and the Department of Commerce.
