Chinese American group designated

2009. 3 July

( New York -- The Committee of 100 (C-100) said Thursday that it has been designated as a Strategic Partner of the USA National Pavilion at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.

As a strategic partner, the C-100 will assist the USA National Pavilion in fund raising and support the "Success of the Chinese in America" exhibit in the Pavilion.

The C-100, a national non-partisan, non-profit membership organization comprised of prominent Chinese Americans in a broad range of professions, has been outreaching to members and companies to encourage support of the pavilion.

In addition, the C-100 is raising public awareness of the World Expo by reaching out to the media, business communities, and both U.S. and Chinese government officials.

Establishment of the strategic partnership is a great beginning to C-100's collaboration with the USA National Pavilion which will serve as an important bridge of understanding between the peoples of the United States and Greater China and as a good opportunity to highlight Chinese American contributions to America," said John S. Chen, Chairman of the C-100.

Ellen R. Eliasoph, co-chair of Shanghai Expo 2010, Inc., said: "We are greatly honored by C-100's support of this effort. C-100's creativity, cross-cultural insights and powerful corporate network will be great assets to the USA National Pavilion."

The Committee's participation will help ensure the authenticity of our important show component depicting the rich legacy and remarkable achievements of the Chinese community in America," she said. "We know that Chinese visitors to our Pavilion will be especially thrilled and proud to know that C-100 is playing a key role in the project."

The Shanghai World Expo 2010 will be held from May 1-Oct. 31, 2010, with a projected 70 million attendees. This will be China's debut as host of a world expo.

At more than 60,000 square feet (some 5,600 square meters), the USA National Pavilion will be one of the largest pavilions at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. It will showcase American culture, values, and businesses in China's most dynamic city, while at the same time celebrating the friendship between the peoples of the United States and China.

Founded in 1989, the C-100 has dedicated its efforts to a dual mission: encouraging constructive relations between the peoples of the United States and China, and encouraging the full participation of Chinese Americans in all aspects of American life. Source:
