Governor Steve Bullock this week announced that he will be leading an eight-day trade mission to China in the Fall.
The mission will bring together leaders in business, education, and government to focus on creating export opportunities for Montana businesses as well as deepening the long-term relationship between Montana’s and China’s economies. The mission will take place September 21 – 29 and include stops in Beijing, Shanghai, and Montana’s sister-state, Guangxi.

“This trade mission will build ties between Montana businesses and Chinese companies and investors, and expand opportunities for education and cultural exchanges,” said Bullock. “There is enormous potential to make an immediate and substantial impact to Montana’s economy by expanding our trade with China.”

U.S. Ambassador to China, Max Baucus, was pleased to hear of the Governor’s trip.

“I was excited to learn that Governor Bullock will be leading a trade delegation to China,” said Baucus. “Expanding trade to China is a huge priority for me and my team at the U.S. Embassy, and we look forward to supporting the delegation as they help Montana businesses expand their opportunities in China,”

China is one of Montana’s fastest growing markets for exports and is currently Montana’s third largest trading partner. Montana exports to China have increased almost tenfold in the last decade with $101 million of commodity goods sold to China in 2013.
