The Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, is visiting Birmingham this week as part of the Birmingham International Center’s 2015 spotlight on China. The Birmingham International Center highlights a different country each year. The goal this year is to improve ties between Alabama and China.
Senior executives, business leaders, government officials and community leaders will hear from numerous Chinese dignitaries. Also scheduled to speak are several appointed Alabama officials that oversee international relationships with China.
