On the evening of June 9, there will be a welcome reception hosted by the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) and about one hundred C-level executives from the 112 central state-owned and some local state-owned companies in China.

(See attached list of Central State-owned Enterprises in China for reference).
On Wednesday, June 10, the delegation will not only participate in the training activities, but also have small group discussions with Chinese executives. The delegation will stay in the same hotel as the Chinese executives or a hotel near the training facility (depending on availability), providing more opportunities to become better acquainted with their executive counterparts in China.
Since the Chinese central government is encouraging its state-owned enterprises to make investments and/or find M&A opportunities in foreign countries, and the US is one of their favorite investment destinations, this is a rare opportunity to have direct contact with these investment-seeking enterprises.
