Ford Motor Company President and CEO Mark Fields has been re-elected as Chairman of the US-China Business Council (USCBC). The Council – formerly known as the “National Council on U.S.-China Trade” – is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1973. It represents around 220 US companies that do business in China, working with both countries to expand their commercial relationship.
“The US-China Business Council has been a valuable and trusted leader in building commercial relations with China for four decades, and I’m proud to continue as chair of its board,” said Ford CEO Mark Fields. “Working with businesses and governments in both nations is critical to strengthening the U.S.-China relationship and addressing challenges within it.
“USCBC works effectively to eliminate market barriers and build opportunities for American companies in China, and I look forward to furthering these goals in the year ahead.”
Mark Fields was first elected to chair the USCBC in June of 2015, after having served as a Vice Chair from late-2014. Other US executives in leadership positions at the USCBC include Robert Iger, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company (USCBC Vice Chair) and Doug McMillon, President and CEO of Wal-Mart Stores (USCBC Vice Chair).
