Victoria Global and The Soho Loft Conferences present Committee of 100 25th Anniversary Celebration Gala Dinner in New York City on 9th April, 2015

Over 500 leaders from government institutions, businesses, media and academic institutions, representatives of American and Chinese descent will meet in New York City for the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Committee of 100 Gala Dinner. This evening event will take place on April 9th at the Gotham Hall. As an organization that draws membership from Americans of Chinese origin, the Committee of 100 with headquarters in New York City is committed to achievement and excellence in America. Since its founding in 1990, the Committee of 100 has the legacy of tapping into the power of its high profile membership in addressing complex issues that touch on relations between China and the United States and Americans of Chinese origin. Its members work actively with policy makers and civic leaders in building trust between the U.S. and China, advancing greater inclusion of Chinese Americans and developing leadership for the next generation.

According to Victoria Global, LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group Founder and Chairman David Drake (http://thesoholoft.com/david/), “Economic shifts in regions such as China and Europe have an impact on the United States and the global economy at large. For instance, the United States did not anticipate that China would suddenly move to lower exchange rates in November 2014. However, this move had a positive effect on the global economy.”

The 25th Anniversary Celebration Gala Dinner with the theme “Celebrating 25 years of Visionary Bridge Builders” has an agenda that combines various activities. The celebration will start with a one hour cocktail reception at 5.30pm. Celebration attendees will then be treated to an Award Gala Dinner later in the evening. The dress code for this initial event is black tie only.

The Gala Award Dinner will be emceed by Joe Wong, a comedian and Melissa Lee, the host of “Fast Money” on CNBC. Some of the top American Chinese, business persons and government representatives expected to grace the Gala Dinner include:
