Chinese Language Skills Will Help Businesses Navigate the Chinese Market

The U.S.-China Language Engagement Act H.R. 2313 is designed to help businesses overcome the obstacles of understanding and navigating the Chinese market.   The bill, which U.S .Rep. Susan David (D-Calif.) introduced in May, would give schools competitive grants to:

1) create, expand or enhance Chinese language and cultural classes

2) broaden technology options to link American and Chinese schools online.

Developing Chinese language skills can help businesses tap into the growing opportunities in the trade with China. Since 2000, U.S. exports to China increased more than 300%. China is the world’s second largest economy based on domestic purchasing power parity.  And its booming economy is a growing export opportunity for U.S. businesses.
