Invitation for Governor’s Mission to China, April 12-21, 2013

Read this invitation from our Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation


China’s population is vast—that you know. What you may not know is that the country’s 1.3 billion people are rapidly gaining purchasing power. In fact, by 2020, China will surpass the U.S. in middle class consumption. And as quickly as China is emerging as a new market for Wisconsin-made products, it is also producing a savvy investor class looking for new opportunities.

Governor Walker understands that China’s economic growth holds great promise for Wisconsin businesses. That is why he is leading a business contingent to this important market—the third largest export destination for Wisconsin companies.

Please consider joining Governor Walker and other Wisconsin business leaders in this strategic trade mission.


As a member of Wisconsin’s mission delegation, you will receive special access to Chinese market information and decision-makers, including customized business appointments reserved for high-level government-sponsored groups. WEDC staff will work with on-the-ground Chinese partners to tailor your experience to fulfill your business objectives. Whether your interest is in market access or capital attraction, this Governor-led trade mission will deliver the intelligence and contacts you seek.


China’s importance as a Wisconsin trade partner is both strong and growing. In the past decade, our exports to this burgeoning economy have grown more than 300% to $1.38 billion. And with the country’s continuing growth, the future holds many new opportunities for Wisconsin businesses, particularly those whose specialties relate to infrastructure development, healthcare, food production, and environmental sustainability.

By participating in this trade mission, you are helping to strengthen a mutually beneficial relationship between our great state and one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

Thanks for your interest. Registration is now closed.
