NEW YORK–While the Western media publishes a slew of stories bemoaning the decline of the economy on the Chinese mainland, the Chinese-related economy in New York is thriving.
Looking to develop new business and break into this expanding market sector, a group of 50 professionals last week met for a dim sum lunch at Jing Fong, a bustling, football-field sized restaurant in New York’s Chinatown.
“It’s a growing community and they have a great energy and a great entrepreneurial spirit,” said Michael Becker, a senior vice president of strategy at Business Wire, which is expanding into China. “Our business is growing because Chinese companies, public and private, have a tremendous desire to communicate their products, vision and values, and we have the mechanism to do so.”
Organized by China Business Knowledge, an online publication focused on Chinese companies that trade on the US stock market, the event brought together Americans looking for cross-border deals with China, and Chinese nationals looking for contacts that can handle their US business.
