"For more than four decades the US-China Business Council has been the leading business organization helping American companies gain market access to China and reach new Chinese customers for American goods and services," Kullman said. "I am privileged to continue to lead this organization. Every day in both countries USCBC works to strengthen the economic relationship between the United States and China. USCBC works with senior leaders from both nations to eliminate market barriers and build new commercial opportunities."

USCBC President John Frisbie announced the following elected officers:
