Chairman, Committee of 100
In charting our course in the New Year, the Committee of 100 is poised to play a pivotal role in strengthening U.S. - China cooperation for 2012. With major political leadership transitions underway in the United States and Greater China, China issues are front and center in this year’s U.S. presidential and congressional elections. Beijing, Taipei, and Hong Kong are closely attuned to the tone and tenor of candidates’ attitudes toward key issues affecting bilateral relations.
As you read this January issue, you will be impressed with the commitment and leadership of C-100 members and staff in executing programs that make a lasting difference in participants’ understanding of U.S.-China relations. The achievements of 2011 affirm the Committee’s increased focus on high-value programs that benefit local communities and advance the U.S. - China dialogue.
I wish you all the very best of success in 2012.
