Los Angeles—Silk Road American Forum was officially launched in Los Angeles, and its first educational trade seminar was held today at Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce.
The forum was initiated by KJC International, Inc. and US News Express, in partnership with the Port of Los Angeles Trade Connect Program.
“The purpose of this forum is to reflect on the historical maritime trade between China and the United States, explore China’s Belt and Road initiative and American involvement, and promote economic and cultural exchanges between American and Chinese people,” said Jennifer Liu, CEO of KJC International, Inc. and Publisher of US News Express. “Trade and cultural exchange can positively change the world in a far-reaching way. Silk Road American Forum is poised to serve as a platform to facilitate people to people exchanges.”
“I hope more professionals in the United States and China will come forward to join the research, so that a complete historical picture of the maritime Silk Road across the Pacific will be presented to the world,” said Mr. Jim MacLellan, Director of Trade Development, Port of Los Angeles, also an expert who is dedicated to the in-depth research on ancient maritime trade route between China and the west coast of North American, and has insightful perspective on trade and cultural exchanges across the Pacific.
