Frisbie said, "USCBC is privileged to have a board comprised of many of America's best business leaders and I am delighted with the election of Evan Greenberg to serve as our chair. The United States has a significant economic interest in our relationship with China – much more than we did five or ten years ago. USCBC estimates that China currently is at least a $400 billion market for American companies, but lingering trade barriers keep it from being even more. With Evan's leadership, USCBC will continue to expand business opportunities and knock down barriers so that American companies can make the most of cooperation between the world's two largest economies."
The US-China Business Council (USCBC) is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization of roughly 200 American companies that do business with China. For over four decades, USCBC has provided unmatched information, advisory, advocacy, and program services to its membership. Through its offices in Washington, DC; Beijing; and Shanghai, USCBC is uniquely positioned to serve its members' interests in the United States and China.
