Welcome the New Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in San Francisco to San Francisco

The forum was organized by the American TeoChow Foundation and Ding Ding TV – The voice of Silicon Valley Asian Americans. Sponsored by Mr. Jinlion Wang and Mr. Ken Fong

Currently, the China-U.S. relationship is at a critical historical moment with challenges and opportunities. In today’s forum, we discussed:
How do we really look at each other?
What can we learn from each other?
How can we work together?

The US-China relationship is the most important issue facing our world today. It also affects Asian/Chinese Americans profoundly in this country. A Pew Survey shows that 89% of Americans have a negative view of China.

Council General Zhang Jianmin talked about the reasons for conflicts between the two countries. And what China can do about it. He also answered the questions “What are 3 things that China is doing right? What are 3 things that China can improve on? “
Mayor Willie Brown shared his suggestions and recommendations to president Biden regarding the relationship between the US and China.
