China Center New York has a unique position in the City as a hub of cultural exchange and conversation between east and west, and the Academy was honored that Charlie Jiang CEO of Vantone Holdings, Chairman of Vantone Real Estate, and CEO of China Center New York was committing to a three-year agreement to leverage the Academy’s network of over 22,000 members to improve scientific collaboration, business opportunities, and education initiatives.
