Max Baucus, the current US ambassador to China, will leave Beijing for home on Jan 16. In a video bidding farewell to the Chinese, Baucus said he saw huge potential for cooperation between the US and China.
"It's really not easy for us to leave," said his wife Melodee Hanes. "We have made so many good friends here...I'm absolutely certain we will be back." President-elect Donald Trump's transition team has issued a mandate requiring politically-appointed ambassadors like Baucus who were installed by President Barack Obama to leave their posts by Inauguration Day (Jan 20).
Trump has nominated Iowa Governor Terry Branstad to become the next ambassador to China.
