Fifteen Chinese CEOs will join the US-China Business Roundtable today in Seattle, during President Xi Jinping's state visit to the US.
CEOs of Chinese companies come from different sectors, including Internet, manufacturing, energy and finance.
Jack Ma, founder and executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba. The company just celebrated its one year anniversary of the NYSE listing on September 9.
Lu Guanqiu, chairman of Wanxiang Group. The Hangzhou-based Chinese multinational automotive components manufacturing company reportedly shook hands with US firms to invest $1 billion in California's hotels on August.
Pony Ma, chairman and CEO of Tencent. As one of the investment arms of the company, Tencent Pictures partnered with the US movie studio Legendary Pictures on September to back a videogame adaptation slated for release next year.
Jiang Jianqing, chairman of Industrial and Commercial Bank of China. The world's largest bank reported $3.45 trillion in total reserve assets in 2014.
As their US counterparts, fifteen American enterprises, such as General Motors, Amazon, Apple, Honeywell, Microsoft and Walt Disney, will also participate in the roundtable.
The roundtable aims to provide an opportunity for US and Chinese business leaders to discuss issues facing the two countries and explore ways to strengthen the Sino-US economic relationship, said Chicago-based think tank Paulson Institute, co-host of the event.
President Xi will attend the meeting and deliver a policy speech.
