About Us

With offices in Shanghai, Beijing and San Francisco, ChinaSF is a public-private initiative of the San Francisco Center for Economic Development (SFCED), in close partnership with the City of San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), supported by funding from private sector partners. Its goal is to attract and retain Chinese investment and business expansion into San Francisco and the Bay Area, and to also support San Francisco Bay Area businesses in their business efforts in China.

As a vibrant international business and cultural hub, San Francisco is an ideal gateway for business between China and North America. Whether it is a Chinese business looking to expand into North American markets or a San Francisco Bay Area company exploring opportunities in China, the close economic and cultural ties between these two geographies provide a unique platform to support new partnerships and business opportunities. San Francisco’s strength in key innovation industries, its geographic and cultural proximity to China, and its world-class workforce provide unbeatable resources to Chinese partners. Likewise, China’s rapidly expanding economy offers Bay Area companies unprecedented opportunity.

To support the complex process of building these invaluable partnerships, ChinaSF provides comprehensive services to help Chinese companies locate, expand, and/or invest in San Francisco. Equally important, ChinaSF can leverage its government and business networks to assist San Francisco Bay Area companies with expanding their opportunities and business in China.
