Why Your Group Should Attend the
Fifth Annual 21st Century China Symposium

There are many reasons for you and your group to attend the 5th Annual 21st Century China Symposium. It gives you a chance to be a part of the future of US-China Relations by learning and participating in round table one-on-one and small group discussions with top China experts. We also are conducting 21st Century China Tours to help your entire team adjust to doing business, traveling, understanding, and enjoying Chinese culture to the fullest. America has a duty to become culturally sensitive to China, and to share the uniqueness of American and Western culture with China. Lasting friendships and relationships form here and help to open the door to your long-range future in China. You will never forget this event. The impact of getting more comfortable with CHINA IS A LIFE-LONG SET OF REWARDS.
Additionally, here are several more good reasons to participate in all of the events associated with the 21st Century China Symposium, July 17-19 at various locations, including Manoa, Waikiki, surprises,China town, and the beach.

1. Don Eads has a passion for all things Chinese, and more importantly, he is a local from Hawaii. He believes his job is to bridge the gap between the US and China with Hawaiian Aloha. Don is a musician/songwriter who has performed all over Hawaii, America, and China. Don also has business ties in China with the top advertising agencies, many of whom are his former students from Peking University. He knows the in's and out's of doing business in China, and he provides this foundation during the Symposium. He is a professor with expertise in China-US Relations and a PhD candidate in International Education.

2. Access to top China Experts. A great example is Dan Piccuta who just retired from Foreign Service. He was in charge of the US Embassy in Beijing until recently when Utah Governor John Huntsman was appointed by President Obama. Dan will share his insights and expertise and take questions. Do you have a visa challenge? Are you thinking about traveling in China? Is your business contemplating setting up shop in the Land of the Dragon? Dan will be at the Symposium to answer your questions, and provide you with up to the minute information about the national leaders, the movers and shakers, and the future of US-China relations.

3. FUN. Aside from all of the great forums we have planned, on Friday night we will host a meet and greet party, followed by a Chinese film. On Saturday night we will have a huge party in Waikiki. On Sunday evening we will host a
BEACH banquet with top notch entertainment.

4. Academics. Papers are coming in echoing this year's theme, "Increasing Trust in US-China Relations." Hear from top academic experts about 21st Century China. We will also publish a Journal of these papers.

5. We are planning 21ST CENTURY China Tours to help each person get oriented and to experience China for yourself. Details will be announced at the Symposium. Don has lived and traveled extensively in China and he can guide you.

6. Early bird ticket prices give you the best deal, just as making travel arrangements soon will save you money. Contact us for the best deals. Group discounts are available.

7. HAWAII! Spend some time with us in paradise while learning about 21st Century China. There are many close ties between Hawaii and China. Hawaii is often described as the bridge between the East and the West.

21st Century China in the

The 21st Century China Symposium has its finger on the pulse of China in many diverse ways.
