On 1 September 2005, business and government leaders from across Alaska gathered in the Hilton Anchorage Hotel to take part in the 1st Alaska-China Business Conference. The event was sponsored by World Trade Center Alaska, the State of Alaska and the Alaska Export Assistance Center.

It was an information-packed day that included presentations by experienced “China hands” that provided ideas, insights and strategies for those seeking to initiate or expand their business in China. A wealth of valuable information was presented and conference attendees were able to have their questions answered during Q & A sessions and during breaks throughout the day.

In total, nine presentations were made covering a wide variety of important issues and aspects of doing business in China. Both challenges and opportunities were discussed. To see photos from the conference, please click here.
