Smart Business Services, Inc. has announced the first-ever U.S.-China Business Summit at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Jan. 3-5, 2010. More than 1,000 minority business owners, entrepreneurs, delegates and government officials will network with fellow attendees and convene at what is expected to be the largest American-Chinese business assembly in history.
The 2010 U.S.-Chinese Business Summit has received support from notable political officials, including Gao Zhansheng, the Chinese consul general in San Francisco, Brian K. Krolicki, lieutenant governor of Nevada, Oscar B. Goodman, mayor of Las Vegas, Judy Chu, congresswoman, David Hinson, national director of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) and Gary Locke, U.S. secretary of commerce.
The event’s key panel features a roundtable discussion on Globalization and Minority-Owned Businesses in the U.S., and will highlight the role of the more than 3 million Chinese entrepreneurs to today’s global economy. The panel will discuss the importance of the economic relationship between the U.S. and China in the changing global economy. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke said the U.S.-China Business Summit is an important step toward furthering one of the largest and most important trading relationships in the world.
“I visited China several times last year and had a chance to see the tremendous opportunities available to American and Chinese businesses in new growth industries,” Locke said. “This conference is an important part of that ongoing dialogue.” The Summit offers 140,000 square feet of venue space and over 60 conferences and networking opportunities. The Summit expects the attendance of officials from the U.S. Commerce Department’s Economic Development Agency, the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the National Restaurant Association, Association of China Investment and others.
