CHICAGO (AP) - World Business Chicago says a delegation of leaders from 105 Chinese businesses is touring Chicago.

The business leaders and senior official from eight Chinese cities started its tour Wednesday.

World Business Chicago says the tour is a response to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s 2013 visit to Beijing. World Business Chicago tries to help develop the city’s economy and raise Chicago’s business profile abroad.

The tour is taking the business leaders to economic development forums and showed them local infrastructure.

According to World Business Chicago, trade between Chicago and China was worth more than $30 billion in 2013. The group says that more than 50 Chinese-owned companies operate in the city and the surrounding area.
