Georgia's main exports include paper products, processed foods and transportation equipment. In addition, 16 Chinese companies have invested in the southern state, employing more than 524 local workers.

North Carolina mainly exports computers and electronics, chemicals, nonmetallic mineral products and agricultural goods.

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie and Guam Governor Eddie Calvo told China Daily that they hope to attract more tourists from China.

On the Chinese side, provincial governments can gain more access to overseas markets through the forum. In July, governors from Zhejiang, Anhui, Yunnan and Qinghai provinces presented their region to more than 20 US governors. In addition, 15 states had one-on-one meetings with Chinese governors, and more than 20 deals were signed.

Former US trade representative Charlene Barshefsky praised such local exchanges.

"The real sources of economic activity and sources of jobs are located in states or provinces," she told China Daily.

"Having much more participation of these sub-national entities in negotiations, programs, and exchanges is absolutely the right thing to do."
