Established in 2008, ChinaSF is an economic initiative of San Francisco in close partnership with the San Francisco Center for Economic Development. ChinaSF’s mission is job creation in San Francisco, accomplished through the recruitment and retention of inbound investment and companies to San Francisco. At the same time, ChinaSF helps San Francisco companies expand into the China market.
