Governor Gary Locke
Governor Gary Locke is an advisor and consultant for Davis Wright Tremaine.

Gov. Locke’s unique understanding of the complexities in the U.S.-China political and economic relationships has earned him the trust and respect of an inner circle of business and government leaders in both countries who value his insight. He has demonstrated a remarkable ability to function within the highest levels of the top Chinese government. For example, Gov. Locke served as the co-chairman of the Washington Welcoming Committee for the Seattle visit of PRC President Xi Jinping in September 2015. In 1997 Locke met with President Jiang Zemin. They enjoyed several more meetings over the next few years. In 2004, Locke visited at length with President Hu Jintao in Beijing. They had met initially when Hu was vice president. As a result of these relationships, in 2006, Gov. Locke was asked by the Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong, to plan and coordinate a visit to Washington by PRC President Hu Jintao. Governor Locke has had a distinguished career in public service. He served as U.S. Ambassador to China (2011 to 2014), U.S. Commerce Secretary (2009 to 2011), and Washington State Governor (1997 to 2005).
