AmCham Shanghai Government Appreciation Dinner
February 4, 2013 - CH2M HILL was a corporate sponsor for the Twelfth Annual Shanghai Government Appreciation Dinner held at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel City Center on December 3.
About 450 guests participated in the event including U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke, AmCham Shanghai Board of Governors chair Kenneth Jerrett, Shanghai Vice Mayor Ai Baojun, Shanghai Commission of Commerce Chairman Zhang Xinsheng and more than 120 Shanghai government officials.
The event celebrated the long-standing partnership of the U.S. business community, the U.S. government and the Shanghai municipal government, which has greatly contributed to the rapid development of Shanghai, China's commercial, industrial and financial capital.
The Ambassador highlighted the important role Shanghai plays hosting U.S. foreign direct investment in China, stating that U.S. investment in the city has reached almost $16 billion.
"We look forward to working with the new leadership in the city and building on the long-standing cooperation between Shanghai, AmCham and the U.S. Consulate," said Locke.
AmCham board members expressed their interest in continuing to support Shanghai's ambitious development goals by offering the services and expertise of American corporate leadership as the municipal government sets its sights on becoming an international economic, financial, trading and shipping center by 2020.
Deputy Director Mr. Du Jian from the Shanghai Transport and Port Authority and Vice President Mr. Zhang Hao from the Shanghai Jinqqiao (Group) Limited Company were invited to CH2M HILL's table to join in some good discussion with our senior executives and clients including our Regional Managing Director John Quarandon, new Greater China Managing Director Stephen Ellison and clients from Tianma Microelectronics Group and Sinopec Shanghai Oil & Gas company.
