Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley is in Hong Kong today as part of a bipartisan Congressional delegation. Senate majority leader Harry Reid is leading the trip. The group will do site visits of American Investments and Clean Energy Projects. China is one of Oregon's largest trading partners. Merkley says as a partner and competitor, China presents opportunity and challenges for the U.S. He hopes to use the knowledge garnered from this trip to help build relationships to benefit Oregon's workers and businesses. Merkley was recently appointed by Senator Reid to the Congressional Executive Commission on China.
