About the Foundation
The China-United States Exchange Foundation (Beijing) was established in September 2012 as a non-public collecting and non-profit organization with the purpose of promoting communication and cooperation between China and United States. The first board of governors consists of 11 members with Mr. Tung Cheehwa as legal representative and Chairman, Madame LI Xiaolin as vice Chairwoman and Ambassador LIU Fei as Secretary General. The Foundation is managed by The Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.
The Foundation’s mission is to further improve communications and enhance understanding between the peoples of China and the United States, strengthen engagement between public- and private-sector opinion leaders and to support greater recognition of common interests in order to further enhance the relationship between the two countries. The Foundation will do this by facilitating open exchange and dialogue among policy-makers, business leaders, academics, think-tanks, cultural figures, and educators from the two countries.
Since its inauguration, the Foundation has launched a number of initiatives to promote cultural, academic and educational exchanges and to support research initiatives directed at facilitating deeper mutual understanding and expanding opportunities for cooperation between the peoples of China and the United States.
The world is growing into a global village of shared destinies. China and the United States are inextricably interdependent. To conform to the trend of development of the bilateral relationship, the Foundation will focus its work on helping the peoples of both countries recognize their many areas of common interests and on identifying and developing additional areas of common interest, serving as a bridge for the two countries by facilitating exchanges and dialogues. We will continue to engage different parties from both China and the US, to enhance this important bilateral relationship on all fronts.
