U.S. China Trade and Investment Forum

April 14
Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, China

This opportunity just came in!  It’s late notice, but if you have representatives in China, we hope you can join.  If you’re not able to attend, our team in China can assist EDOs and partners to present investment projects for a nominal fee.  

Shanxi Province is a major center for China’s coal mining and energy industry. With great growth in demand for efficient energy resources comes commensurate demand for technology and equipment to access those resources safely.  Moreover, Chinese energy companies seek investment opportunities and viable partnerships with U.S. counterparts in the clean coal and clean energy sub-sectors.   EDOs and/or their partners who attend in person will meet with investors and visit a local company.  Click here for more.
