President Xi Jinping at Capitol Hill during State Visit to the United States

Chinese President Xi Jinping (6th R) met with members of the United States Congress including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and leaders of several Senate and House committees, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC on September 25, 2015 as part of his official state visit to the United States. During his visit, President Xi commended the legislative bodies of both the United States and China for their support in advancing relations between China and the United States.  The US-China Transpacific Foundation (UCTPF) assisted in coordinating the meeting between President Xi Jinping and leadership of the United States Congress.


The US-China Transpacific Foundation (UCTPF) was established in 2015 to forge strong bi-lateral ties between the two nations with the belief that a positive relationship between the world’s two most influential economies is essential for the well-being of the global economy.  

The US-China Transpacific Foundation is a non-profit public organization and is classified by the IRS as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization with a MECEA status to allow the Foundation to carry out programs that comply with the requirements of Section 108A of the Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961 [Public Law 87-256] and implement regulations set forth in 22 CFR Part 64.


The Foundation strives to promote the mutual interests of both the United States and China through political, cultural and educational exchanges as well as economic and trade forums designed to promote productive partnerships between businesses from the two nations. In essence, the aim of the Foundation is to raise public and corporate awareness of the importance of the US-China relationship, increase communication across many sectors, and foster closer relationships between the US and China. (MECEA status means that the Foundation has been reviewed and approved by relevant departments of China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the State Department of the United States).
