On October 13th, United Cultures Innovation Center for International

Cooperation (UCIC) and the Harvard US-China Economic Interaction Council

(HUCEIC) co-organized 2014 US-China Diaspora Entrepreneurship Forum at Harvard

University. Around 300 people attended the conference.

The one-day conference has created a rare

opportunity for the local community to share and learn from established Chinese

Americans including government officials, business leaders, and non-profit

leaders and scholars.

Massachusetts State Representative Tackey Chan, during his opening

remarks, shared his personal journeys about being a Chinese American. The

conference attracted two dozen panelists from various sectors and diverse

background, who formed five different panels, each focusing on a key topic:

“Translational Medicine in the Genomics Era”, “US-China Capital Market

Relations and Dialogue Opportunities”, “Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the

Education and Cultural Industry”, “Career Development and an Abroad Community”,

and “the Entrepreneurship Spirit in a New Era”.

The President of UCIC, Ms. Xin Li and the

President of HUCEIC Geng Xiong said that they hoped the forum would bring the

Chinese community together and let the older generation pass on their

experience and wisdom to the next generation so that we not only strengthen the

social fabric within the Chinese community but will also make the Chinese

community more engaged with the society as a whole, through practices that

foster innovation and create social impact.

The origin of the forum stems from former

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s announcement to launch the International Diaspora

Engagement Alliance (IdEA) during the Global Diaspora Week (GDW) in 2011. After

organizing Chinese panels during GDW in the past few years, UCIC and HUCEIC

were able to bring together the Chinese American community and organize the

unprecedented conference that would potentially take the Chinese American

Community into a new phase of collaborative learning, community engagement and

innovative entrepreneurship.

The Executive Director of Massachusetts Office

of International Trade of Investment, Richard Elam, delivered the remarks at

the celebration dinner on behalf of the Governor Patrick.

Influentialmedia including China Daily, People.nc, Phoenix TV, UR Business Network

reported the event.
