Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), known for his tough stance against some of China's trade practices, was nominated by President Barack Obama to be the next ambassador to China, according to Senate aides.

Baucus, who announced earlier this year his intention to retire from the Senate at the end of next year, currently chairs the powerful Senate Finance Committee, which oversees tax, healthcare, and trade policy. It is expected that Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) will take over as chair for Senate Finance.

VNAA has enjoyed working with Sen. Baucus and his staff and also looks forward to working with and building a relationship with Sen. Wyden and his staff.
