Founded in 1973, USCBC has provided unmatched information, advisory, advocacy, and program services to its membership for more than three decades. Through its offices in Washington, DC; Beijing; and Shanghai, USCBC is uniquely positioned to serve its members' interests in the United States and China. USCBC's mission is to expand the US-China commercial relationship to the benefit of its membership and, more broadly, the US economy. It favors constructive engagement with China to eliminate trade and investment barriers and develop a rules-based commercial environment that is predictable and transparent to all parties. Among USCBC's members are many large and well-known US corporations, but smaller companies and service firms make up a substantial portion of the overall membership. USCBC is governed by a board of directors composed of distinguished corporate leaders; the current chair is Robert McDonald, chief executive officer of the Procter & Gamble Company. John Frisbie has been USCBC's president since 2004. USCBC has long served as a respected host of events featuring senior officials from the US and PRC governments. In recent years, USCBC has been honored to receive PRC President Hu Jintao, Premier Wen Jiabao, Vice Premier Wang Qishan, and other distinguished guests from central and provincial government entities. Recent American public figures to meet with USCBC members in the United States and China have included Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, US Trade Representative Ron Kirk, US Ambassador to China and former Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III, former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen.
