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.

“This ceremony is the first step in a significant alliance that will not only create a conduit for science, technology, engineering, math, and business, but also strengthen the Academy’s global reach and China Center New York’s footprint in the US,” said Ellis Rubinstein, CEO and President at the New York Academy of Sciences.

Scientific communication will become an important part of China Center’s collaboration events. I’m delighted to be able to formally announce that science, technology, and business leaders from China and the USA will be able to come together to share ideas and solve global innovation and economic challenges.”
