On March 8, 2016, Damjan DeNoble, partner at Rubicon Strategy Group and blogger at Health Intel Asia, lauded TN-China Network as “the right kind of state-China network org”.
To be done correctly, the State-China network needs to be led by a business person, preferably with extensive experience in China and the US, who is bilingual, and who is doing this sort of work on a full time basis. I know of few people who fit this mold, and only of one organization in my neck of the woods within the US Southeast – that group is the TN-China Network, led by the enterprising Elizabeth Rowland, who has worked, in her impressive career, at the US Department of State, Covington & Burling, and the American Chamber of Commerce in China, and has degrees in international relations (MA) and Chinese language from the Johns Hopkins University and Fudan University, in Shanghai, respectively.
In addition, the website itself is loaded with useful information, including a list of Chinese-invested companies within the state. Like the organization, the TN-China Network website is loaded with facts relevant to business people.
