BEIJING - A group of business leaders from renewable energy companies will visit the United States, on a fact-finding trip, in the first half of 2011, a US commerce official said on Monday.
The executives, who will be discussing commercial opportunities as well as learning about the business environment, will have one-to-one talks with business leaders in industry and local government officials, said Bryan D. Larson, first secretary for Commercial Affairs of the US Department of Commerce.
"I believe the trip will help the Chinese companies immensely. They will get to know where their advantages are and how to start their business," he said.
Chinese renewable energy companies need to learn more about the business environment and regulations in the US, said Chinese energy officials.
A number of Chinese companies have expressed interest in investing in the US. However, they lack knowledge and experience of US business culture, said Wang Jun, director general at the New Energy and Renewable Energy Department of the National Energy Administration (NEA).
