Des Moines Register journalists Kyle Munson and Kelsey Kremer traveled to China for two weeks in late September to report on Iowa’s unlikely and often influential role in U.S-China relations.
Amb. Terry Branstad, Iowa’s former governor, recently began his work in Beijing. This month he welcomes President Donald Trump to China to address the nuclear threat from North Korea and promote U.S. trade.
The project will be published in six chapters and can be followed at DesMoinesRegister.com/China.
This short documentary feature from Kremer introduces some of the people and places you'll see throughout the series.
