The Midwest U.S.- China Association links the myriad opportunities of the region with similar interests in China. The 12 states of the Midwest offer unparalleled resources for manufacturing, energy, agriculture, and transportation. By forging meaningful partnerships, we can make full use of the opportunities that collaboration between the Midwest U.S. and China provides, bringing long-term growth to each region.
