Gary Locke The first Chinese-American ambassador to China


As Governor, he oversaw the creation of 280,000 new private sector jobs.  He also had the most diverse cabinet in state history and over half his judicial appointees were women.  His management skills and innovations won him acclaim by nationally recognized organizations, including Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.  During his tenure, Washington was ranked one of America’s four best managed states.

As Commerce Secretary, he led President Obama’s National Export Initiative to double American exports; assumed a troubled 2010 Census but which under his supervision ended on time and $2 billion under budget; and achieved the most significant reduction in patent application processing in the agency’s history.

As U.S. Ambassador to China, he opened markets for made-in-USA goods and services; reduced wait times for visa interviews of Chinese applicants from 100 days to 3; and through the Embassy’s air quality monitoring program, exposed the severity of China’s air pollution.
