Commerce Chief Chooses China Traveling Companions

By John S. McClenahen When U.S. Commerce Secretary Donald Evans leads a business development mission to China April 21-25, some 15 executives from U.S. companies will be going along. The delegation's stated purpose is to expand and develop new U.S. export opportunities for firms in information technology, telecommunications, clean energy and environmental technology, and construction equipment and services. It will be the first U.S. trade mission to the People's Republic since China's late-2001 admission to the World Trade Organization. The U.S. companies slated to be represented on the trip are Advanced Environmental Systems, Applied Materials, Baxter International, Borland Software, Cummins, En Chem, Energy Conversion Devices, FCX Systems, General Energy Technologies, Johnson & Johnson, Lucent Technologies, Motorola, Parson Brinckerhoff, Parsons Corp. and Tek Pak.
