MADISON — The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation will host a trade venture to China for Wisconsin companies from Jan. 8 through Jan. 16.

The business development trip will include visits to Tianjin and Nanjing. China’s fourth-largest city, Tianjin is located half an hour from Beijing by high-speed train. It is a hub for advanced industries and finance, and is also a major seaport. Nanjing is the second-largest commercial center in eastern China after Shanghai. With a rapidly growing economy, the area’s developing clean energy, advanced manufacturing and health care interests mirror those of Wisconsin.

Before going on the trip, WEDC encourages companies to enroll in customized export acceleration program tailored specifically for the Chinese market through ExporTech, which will offers sessions in November and December.
