[photopress:Wilbur_K._Woo.jpg,full,alignright]China’s emergence as an economic superpower is an opportunity to expand collaboration between Chinese and American business entrepreneurs. A two-day conference at the UCLA Anderson School of Management dealt with this subject.
Wilbur K. Woo, vice chairman emeritus of Cathay General Bancorp, said, ‘The conference is an opportunity for individuals from the U.S. and China to engage in discussions that expand and inform the economic and political dialogue between the two regions.’
Wlbur K. Woo has endowed the annual Wilbur K. Woo Greater China Business Conference at the UCLA Anderson School of Management to promote understanding of economic ties between China and the United States. Woo, who was born in China in 1916, received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from UCLA.
Judy D. Olian, dean of the UCLA Anderson School of Management, said, ‘The Greater China region is fast becoming one of the most influential forces in today’s global economy, and entrepreneurial enterprise is central to its continued economic growth.’ She is exploring cooperative ventures with Chinese educational institutions.
The conference addressed four sectors which are key drivers of growth, both in the California region and Greater China, including real estate, finance/venture capital, sports/entertainment and technology/media.
Business leaders, academics and top MBA students were among the conference participants. A workshop on building a career in China was also offered to students.
