Compared with investment institutions of other types,CMIG enjoys three competitive advantages. First, we have Chairman Dong, who enjoys a great reputation in the U.S.,not only for his greatness, but also his excellence in identifying talent.. Second, we have quality Global Advisory Council and excellent executive team. Third,CMIG is completely run by private capital.
I worked for American investors when I first visited China in 1979. The Chinese people I came into contact with at that time have now become a constructive pillar for the Sino-US relations. I hope CMIG can invest in this field well,and become a better pillar for the bilateralrelationship.
