The majority of the US-Asia Institute’s Congressional staff delegations travel to China. Since 1985, USAI has coordinated over 86 delegations and exchanges to China. The success of our delegations rely on close cooperation with our Chinese partners: the Chinese People’s Institute of Foreign Affairs (CPIFA), the Better Hong Kong Foundation (BHKF) and the National People’s Congress (NPC).
Over 800 Congressional staff members have traveled to China on USAI delegations. The delegations have traveled to nearly every corner of China, including Xinjiang and Tibet, and have covered a wide range of themes of great importance to US-China relations.
