Research on the deepening U.S. involvement with the communist Chinese revealed this: the Next Stop America China 2011 conference promoted by a members-only organization called Golden Networking.
Golden is right since the focus of the conference is to instruct Chinese CEO’s how to invest in U.S. commercial and residential real estate, including a session called Leveraging Incentives and Government Relations.
Just in time to scoop up home foreclosures or those urban properties local municipalities are so anxious to develop?
Below is the Golden Networking description of the Next Stop America China 2011 conference: (www.nextstopamerica.com, click Business Receptions, then scroll down through the list of events to see this one.):

As China transitions from a low cost manufacturing country to a well rounded economy that includes services and overseas expansion, the reality of landing your firm in America is here.
If Chinese business owners and CEOs are going to heed the government’s call to become more innovative, to create Chinese brands and to take their businesses abroad, they must understand what it takes to succeed in foreign markets and in the United States, in particular. Chinese business owners have been reluctant to take their businesses to America because they are uncertain about the market requirements and rules of doing business in America. Next Stop America China Conference 2011 will address what Chinese business owners need to know to enter and to actually succeed in the United States.” End of excerpt.
This event precedes the upcoming U.S.-China 2011 trade conference, scheduled for July 14-17, 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah. This conference is to focus on trade, culture and education. Saturday’s agenda includes 3-hour session for U.S./China one-on-one business meetings.
What a coincidence that the National Governors Association (NGA) will be sponsoring the U.S.-China Governors Forum* right across the street at their own conference with Chinese party officials. This NGA closed-door meeting includes one-on-one pairing with Chinese party officials to develop agreements on job creation, education, health and economic development.
We’re in trouble here.
*Repeated requests for a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding creating the U.S.-China Governors Forum, announced on the U.S. State Department’s website, have gone unanswered. This effort will continue to be pursued by OK-SAFE.
