Americans began trading with China from the moment that the nation was founded, and for 230 years, Americans and Chinese have fascinated, exasperated, outsmarted and profited from one another.
The Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia will present a talk to the community titled "200 Years of US-China Trade in Pictures" on Monday, February 24 at 12:00 noon. This presentation is free and open to the public. A $5 donation is requested to cover the cost of tea and dessert.
James Chan, Ph.D., a professor turned business consultant, has been helping U.S. firms market American-made products and services to China for 33 years. Dr. Chan’s presentation will combine a scholar’s perspective as a cultural geographer and student of the Chinese psyche with his practical understanding of today’s China trade.
Using photographs and illustrations old and new, James Chan will offer an entertaining historical-cultural-geopolitical-economic chop suey that links stories of long ago with pressing issues of today.
