"We have a workforce in that part of the state that has a heritage in the furniture industry," Roy Dahlquist, managing director for Asia for the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, told China Daily in an interview on Monday. "Having an educated and well trained workforce in that industry was a step up for Virginia in terms of our competition."

Virginia's port system also lured the Chinese investor. "Our Virginia port was important to them - they'll be shipping to other global markets," Dahlquist said.
"It's not only the 125 jobs which are critically important, but it's the psychology of the fact that the industry is returning to some of its roots," Dahlquist said.
"In Virginia we have a lot of the hardwood that is used. At one time the hardwood was harvested and shipped to China and other countries, made into furniture and returned to the US and sold by big box retailers," he said. "Now they are bringing the manufacturing to where the raw material is, the timber."
Outside North America, China is Virginia's top export destination. It also is the state's top source of imports.
McDonnell, who was not available for an interview, has spent more days visiting China than any other country, Dahlquist said.

"China is very, very important to Virginia from an economic standpoint," said Roy Dahlquist, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership's managing director for Asia.

"If you look at China today, there is undoubtedly a rapidly growing class of people with more and more disposable income, and they use that income to buy U.S. and Virginia-made products," Dahlquist said.
