Since taking office, Mayor Emanuel has made a big push to lure Chinese companies and investors to Chicago — and to ramp up business ties between our city and cities like Beijing and Shanghai.
In fact, just this weekend, the delegation that Chicago sent on a trade mission to China for the second time on the mayor’s watch has returned home. Here to talk about what Chicago needs to do to cater to Chinese businesses and to talk about the city’s efforts when it comes to China is Tracy Xu, president of the Chicago-based China Executive Club. China Executive Club is a non-profit group that serves the needs of Chinese companies doing business in Chicago and the Midwest.(Flickr/Wilson Hui)
