Chairman's Message 会长致辞

Dear Friends, 


I have been associated with the U.S-China Exchange Council for more than 15 years.  During that time, I have been fortunate to take part in its growth from its founding in 1993 to its present status as a vibrant organization that hosts over 700 professionals and students in more than 30 programs each year.  

The programs vary from week-long visits to Bay Area campuses and industries to 4 to 6 month stays that incorporate trips to government and business sites throughout the country, including Washington, D.C. 

The participants may be specialists from Chinese governmental agencies such as the Ministry of Transportation or the Emergency Management Office of the State Council of China.  Others represent non-governmental companies or centers studying innovations in continuing education or globalization strategy and innovation in the ecosystem. 

Additionally, the Council has developed youth programs that make it possible for high school age students to live in an American home and attend a high school in the Bay Area.  More than 120 youth participated in these programs in 2016. 

In addition to the academic and professional education that is a part of each USCEC program, each USCEC program enables a visitor to broaden his/her perspective of the United States and its varied population.  I thoroughly believe in and take pride in my connection with the USCEC, its operational philosophy, and programs.  And I wish it continued success for many years to come.
