Chen Jinya's Talk

Jinya Chen, Vice President of Alcoa, President for Asia-Pacific Region, delivered a speech at CMU on environmentally friendly role of Aluminum in the global warming age and environmental challenges China would be faced with. Alcoa is cooperating with companies in China to provide resolutions to these challenges, such as energy-saving aluminum bus and shell of China’s largest passenger jet, C919.

 

A Letter from US National Health Service Adviser

To Chair Rui Ma and the Members of the CMU Summit Team:


Congratulations for a successful CMU Summit on US-China Innovation and Entrepreneurship! The effect of continued cooperation between the world's most important bilateral relationship on innovation cannot be understated. Through the interchange of ideas, the U.S. and China will help each other advance faster and further than either could alone.
I wish CMU and all the attendees the best going forward, and trust that the Summit has provided everyone with a meaningful experience with which to build further innovation and entrepreneurship. Sincerely,
Dr. Grace Shu
US National Health Service Adviser
Commissioner, Pennsylvania Governor's Advisory Commission
