The Transportation Forum came about through the U.S. - China Strategic and Economic Dialogue (S&ED) in 2008. The Forum serves as a bilateral setting for multi-modal transportation discussion and cooperation between the United States and China. Since its inception, the Forum has resulted in a multitude of effective engagements and cooperative activities and the development of mutually beneficial solutions to common transportation challenges.
The 7th U.S.-China Transportation Forum was held in Suzhou, China, November 5- 6, 2015. Delegations from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Transport (MOT) met to discuss and review actions taken this past year by the Transportation Forum's Working Groups.
The U.S. and Chinese delegations were led by the Deputy Secretary of Transportation, Victor Mendez and the Vice Minister of the China MOT, Weng Mengyong, respectively. Participants included U.S. Government officials from the Trade and Development Agency, as well as the Departments of State and Commerce along with United States and Chinese industry.
The Transportation Forum welcomes private sector and non-profit participation. The Forum achieves this through business roundtables, special sessions, site visits, and inclusive working group meetings. We welcome your suggestions on how to make the Forum more useful for business sector and to promote U.S. technology, innovation, manufacturing, and services.
The 8th Transportation Forum will take place in Los Angeles, June 1-3, 2016.
