International Trade Facilitation
The Center connects its corporate partners with more than 200 Chinese alumni, many of whom have attained very high levels in their organizations and have strong allegiances to West Virginia University.
This allegiance is reinforced through an annual alumni meeting in Shanghai, Tianjin, and Xian each June, where corporate partners have the opportunity to network with former participants and their families. Gaining an introduction to these Chinese executives would be quite difficult without the relationships the Center has cultivated.
The Center offers export seminars throughout West Virginia and has expanded its scope of activities to include export assistance throughout the world. The same level of expertise that the Center has used during the past fifteen years to assist companies in China is used to aid West Virginia companies wishing to explore trade opportunities around the globe.
