International trade between China, California, and the East Bay will be the focus when the Hayward Chamber of Commerce hosts a luncheon May 18 at 11:30 a.m. at the Golden Peacock Banquet Hall, 24989 Santa Clara St. The guest presenter will be Yihang Yang, commercial counselor for the Consulate General of the People's Republic of China, San Francisco. Reservations are now available HERE. Tickets will not be sold at the door.
In 2016, China was California’s third largest export destination, with approximately $14.4 billion in exports, according to the US State Department. US trade representatives report that China has been one of the world’s fastest growing economies over the past several years and its efforts to reform and modernize have helped transform China into a large trading economy.
Yang has 15 years of experience promoting international trade and investment for China. His specific expertise includes industries such as automobiles, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, new materials, and logistics. He has served as commercial counselor for the Consulate General’s office since November 2015.
