Our Special Relationships

MCBC is particularly proud of its many working relationships with both US and Chinese entities relating to doing business with China. Many of these offer special access or networking opportunities for Council members.

For example, the ongoing relationship with the Chinese Embassy and its key officials has been significant and rewarding for MCBC members. It has been manifested by numerous events hosted at the Chinese Embassy for MCBC members and by annual outings hosted by MCBC for Embassy staff.

Also of note are joint activities with MCBC as co-sponsor or co-organizer with the US Department of Commerce, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, the World Trade Center Institute and many others.
