WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/13 --  The US-China Business
Council (USCBC) today announced the election of DuPont Chair & CEO
Ellen Kullman as USCBC chair as well as the election of other
officers and board directors. 
"I am pleased to lead the US-China Business Council at this important
time for US-China commercial relations. USCBC is the leading business
organization representing American commercial interests with China,"
Kullman said. "USCBC is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year
and has seen many business advances over four decades. Challenges
still remain in the commercial relationship, but there are tremendous
opportunities to partner between the two countries to ensure
sustainable development, economic growth and job creation." 
"When you add up exports to China and sales by companies with
operations in China, USCBC estimates that China is at least a $250
billion market for American companies," Kullman continued. "I look
forward to serving as USCBC chair during this milestone year and
advocating for effective and sensible approaches to further promote
and strengthen the US-China commercial relationship." 
Kullman leads a global market-driven science company with annual
revenues of nearly $35 billion. DuPont operates in more than 90
countries and has brought world-class integrated science and
engineering to the global marketplace through innovative products,
materials and services. With over 40 wholly owned or joint venture
entities and 7,000 employees in mainland China, DuPont offers
technology, products and services to industries including
agriculture, food and nutrition, electronics, and transportation.

the most dynamic boards consisting of America's best business
leaders," Frisbie said. "China is a market that matters greatly to
America. Clearly there are an array of issues that need to be
addressed for more growth to occur, including investment barriers,
intellectual property protection, cybersecurity, and a level playing
field for all enterprises. Under the leadership of the board, USCBC
will continue its high-level advocacy to address these issues and
keep the commercial relationship moving forward constructively." 
Kullman succeeds Bob McDonald, former chairman, president, and CEO of
The Procter & Gamble Company, as USCBC chair. 
"I want to thank Bob McDonald for his leadership and dedication to
USCBC's mission during his tenure as chair," Frisbie said.
