This combined December/January issue brings you up to date on our Third Greater China Conference in Beijing in December and other related activities in China.
At the conference, we were proud to have the U.S. Ambassador to China, Jon Huntsman, deliver the keynote address. My special thanks to the Conference Co-Chairs for their tremendous dedication to making the event successful: Jeffrey Li, Kai-Fu Lee, and Ya-Qin Zhang. Also I extend my personal appreciation to the 28 C-100 members who came to support the conference, many traveling from the United States.
Following the conference, the Foreign Affairs Committee of China’s National People’s Congress organized a series of high-level meetings for a delegation of twenty Committee of 100 members and staff. We had a great opportunity to speak with China’s top legislator Wu Bangguo, Vice Premier Wang Qishan, and other senior Chinese leaders about the status of U.S.-China relations and the impact of President Obama’s recent visit to China.
