The opening of the new facility signals a major milestone, building on an agreement previously signed between California Governor Jerry Brown and Sichuan Party Secretary Wang Dongming, a little over a year ago during a U.S./China Governors’ conference held on the U.S. west coast.  The agreement called for increased collaboration in business, energy conservation, education, and cultural exchanges.  The California Center in Chengdu will serve as a hub for that activity and as a home for many California businesses.
