By Christopher Sarachilli | October 13, 2015

Nearly 80 people met in the Commons Great Room to join groups in more than 70 cities throughout the United States for the Oct. 5 China Town Hall, a national day of programming on China and Chinese business. The group comprised area business leaders, members of the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia (WTCGP), local government officials, Arcadia faculty, and undergraduate and graduate business students.

Sponsored by the School of Global Business and the WTCGP in coordination with the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, the event featured a town hall meeting and live webcast with Robert Rubin (former US Secretary of the Treasury and co-COO, co-chairman, and co-senior partner of Goldman, Sachs & Company), Sheldon Day (the 19-year mayor of Thomasville, Ala., who brought more than $700 million in capital investments to the region), and Daniel Rosen (founding partner of the Rhodium Group and leader of the firm’s work on China and the world economy).
