— 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
