Former Vice-President, Senators, and Governors bring bi-partisan expertise and Midwest know-how to benefit Midwest U.S.-China Association

The Midwest U.S. – China Association (MWCA), a nonprofit, bipartisan organization led by former Missouri Governor Bob Holden is increasing its efforts to champion the 12-state region’s economic promise.  Midwest entities in the public and private sectors looking to do business with China will now benefit from access to the organization’s high profile board of strategic advisers.

The roster includes high profile former Midwest elected officials including: U.S. Vice President, Walter Mondale, Senator Adlai Stevenson, III (IL), Governor Matt Blunt (MO), Governor Chet Culver (IA), Governor Jim Edgar (IL), Governor Bob Taft (OH), and Governor Jim Thompson (IL).

MWCA, which was established in 2004, promotes opportunities for partnership and growth between the 12 Midwestern states and China. The organization stresses its expansive access to Chinese and Midwestern business, government, and political leadership and its focus on creating intentional one-to-one network opportunities between Chinese and U.S. entities and individuals as its core “distinctive service” for its members.

“We invited the strategic advisers to participate with MWCA to ensure that the key interests of all Midwestern states are represented,” shares MWCA Chairman, Governor Holden. “When potential Chinese partners explore the possibilities of doing business with our Midwest members, our advisers offer unmatched expertise, credibility, and access to the best that the region has to offer and help this organization operate in a truly regional way.”

Membership in the Midwest U.S.-China Association is open to businesses, colleges and universities, organizations, municipalities, and individuals.
