Although a challenging marketplace, China’s vast size, growing wealth, changing demographics and economic transformation continues to create opportunities for well-prepared US firms. Indiana’s exports to China have increased 164% over the past 10 years, far outpacing our state’s export growth to our other leading trade partners making China Indiana’s 3rd largest export market.

Over the past two decades, China’s middle class has experienced one of the fastest growth rates in the world, generating demand for a broad range of products – including those made in Indiana.

Join us on July 20, 2023, Noon to 1pm for an Export Lunch & Learn Webinar as we discuss current opportunities and challenges in the Chinese market. We’ll hear speakers from the US – China Business Council, the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council, Cook Medical Group and Vista Nuclear Solutions. Q&A will extend until 1:15 to accommodate questions from attendees.
