New York area Committee members hosted a select group of Eisenhower Fellows from Taiwan and China on November 7. The Committee regularly meets with these small delegations of emerging Chinese leaders in government, business and academia who visit the United States under the auspices of the Eisenhower Fellowship program. Establishing ongoing relationships with Greater China’s current and future leaders is a component of the Committee’s leadership development efforts.
The Committee was represented by C-100 New York Regional Vice Chair Lulu C. Wang, Guoqing Chen, Anla Cheng, James Li, Henry Tang, Executive Director Angie Tang, Public Relations Director An Ping, and Director of Special Projects Alice Lin.
2011 Eisenhower Fellows at the meeting were Cai Chenyu, CEO and President of Globelink China Logistics (Shanghai); Victor (Kuo Lin) Kuan, Chairman, Citibank Taiwan (Taipei); Li Yang, Deputy Director General, General Office of the Ministry of Transport (Beijing); Liu Liqun, Vice President, Community University of China and Deputy Secretary General, China Women’s Studies Society (Beijing); Men Honghua, Deputy Director, Center of International Strategic Studies, and Professor, Central Committee Party School (Beijing); Albert Kwang-chin Ting, Chairman, CX Technology and Phu Hung Securities Corporation (Taipei); and Zhan Yuyin, Director General of Investment, National Council for Social Securities Fund (Beijing).
Mark Carnesi, Senior Director for International Programs, said, “The feedback we received from our Fellows was overwhelmingly positive.” Because Wang and the other Committee members each shared their own backgrounds with the Fellows, this led to a mutual realization about how much C-100 members and the Eisenhower Fellows had in common and the benefits of maintaining links in the future. “Our Fellows were clearly impressed by the prominence and accomplishments of the C-100 members in attendance and also with the mission, goals, and successes of C-100 as an organization,” said Carnesi.
