BIRMINGHAM , AL (WAFF) - Chinese Ambassador, Cui Tiankai, will be in Birmingham Friday for a business roundtable.

This business roundtable gets dignitaries and key executives from the U.S. and Chinese corporations who are interested in growing business relationships in Alabama.

It will serve as a forum for exploring new opportunities and discussing challenges that come along with international business development.

The roundtable will focus on four sectors: automotive, agriculture, investment, and energy.

Each year the Birmingham International Center spotlights a different country with programs and activities designed to bring greater cultural understanding.

This year they chose China because it's Alabama's 2nd largest export market valued at $2.5 billion.
