In 1989, trade and economic issues played a major role in the United States' relationship with Southeast Asia, and people from that region desired a better understanding of how the American economy functioned and affected the global economy. This was the first regional program carried out by the National Committee: the delegation was comprised of 11 Cantonese-speaking journalists from the PRC, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Expanding U.S.-China exchange programs beyond sports and culture, the National Committee and American Society of Newspaper Editors brought the first delegation of journalists from the People's Republic of China to the United States in 1973. Since then, several hundred journalists and media executives have participated in NCUSCR exchange programs and media-related conferences, workshops, and internships.
