We would like to invite you to attend the opening event of US China Partnerships hosted by Houston Mayor Annise Parker at Julia Ideson Library at Houston City Hall at 5:00pm Feb.26, 2014. US China Partnerships is a non-profit organization and will play a major role of strengthening the bridge between U.S. and China, particularly between Houston/Texas and China, and supporting, publicizing and enhancing all existing bilateral business, cultural and educational ties between China and the Houston region. Former President George H.W. Bush is our Honorary Chairman along with Honorary Director U.S. Congressman Ted Poe who serves on House Committee on Foreign Affairs, basketball star Yao Ming and Houston Mayor Annise Parker, among other honorary directors.
U.S. China Partnerships also seeks to operate as a platform for sustained and substantive exchanges between the U.S. and China, and plans to facilitate two-way high level dialogues, organize cultural events, educational seminars and identify opportunities to create professional exchanges or sustain existing exchanges. US China Partnerships will also promote energy and public health cooperation between US and China. Houston has always played an important role in China- U.S. relations, in the word of former President George H.W Bush for decade-our most important bilateral relation. In 1979, Deng Xiaoping visited Houston during his historic visit to the U.S. In the same year, China established the very first Consulate General in the U.S in Houston. In 2003, President Jiang Zemin visited Houston. Houston is home to 94 foreign consulates and the headquarters of 25 Fortune 500 companies. It also has the world's largest medical center and the world's leading heart, cancer, brain and children care systems; Houston is well known as the "Energy Capital of the World" because of its large concentration of oil, gas and renewable energy companies.
This year, 2014, marks the 35th anniversary of diplomatic relationship between China and U.S. As two of the world’s largest economies and populations, China and US are critical partners on many of today’s most pressing global issues. From pursuing clean energy resources to promoting public health, the Chinese and American people and governments must face the complex challenges of the 21st century together. The healthy development of China-US relationship is not only beneficial to China and the U.S., it is also beneficial to all countries in the world.
Thank you for your support. Please contact us if you need more information.
