The 4th China-U.S. Governors Forum was held in Chengdu on May 22, 2018. Hunan was said to strengthen economic and trade, and tourism and cultural exchanges with the US, to promote healthy and sustainable Sino-US relationship progress.

Currently, Hunan has established 15 pairs of sister-city ties with the US. The US is the country with the largest number of visitors to Hunan after Asian countries. Since the beginning of this year, the US has invested 10 projects in Hunan with a contracted foreign investment of 160 million USD, a year-on-year increase of 93.7%.

By the end of this April, the Hunan Provincial Department of Commerce approved 132 Hunan enterprises investing or doing business in the US, with a total contracted investment of 2.247 billion USD. They are located in 19 states of the United States and the Washington D.C. The main investment fields are machinery manufacturing, trade and sales, new energy, and biomedicine.

Hunan participated in the first session in 2011. This year the forum focuses on topics of “trade and investment”, “green development”, and “innovative economy”.
