Distant Neighbors, Common Interests: Amy Hsuan on Reporting in China - China Business Network series of the NW China Council
Wong Kee Restaurant

Lunch presentation by Oregonian reporter Amy Hsuan, who visited China in November, traveling 4,500 miles by train, plane, automobile and motorized cart. Her mission: to tell stories of why China's rapid transformation matters to Oregonians and the state's economy. Her trip resulted in a five-day series in The Oregonian which covered an expanse of industries: solar, timber, green building, high-tech. Amy will talk about reporting in China, covering the topics in her series and working as a reporter there. A question and answer period will follow.

Amy Hsuan started her career at The Oregonian in Portland, Ore. as an intern after receiving her master's degree in journalism from the Newhouse School of Public Communications, where she won a full scholarship as the Newhouse Minority Fellow in 2003. Over her past five years at The Oregonian, she has worked as a general assignment reporter and covered neighborhoods, education and now business. In November 2008, she was one of six U.S. reporters to be awarded an international reporting fellowship with the Thompson Reuters Foundation, when she traveled in China for three weeks exploring financial ties to Oregon. Prior to working at The Oregonian, Hsuan worked as a cultural anthropologist after receiving her bachelor's degree in anthropology in 2001 from the University of California at Los Angeles, where she was a Regents Scholar. She has served two terms as the president of the Asian American Journalists Association, Portland Chapter.

Congressman Earl Blumenauer: China, Global Warming, & Clean Energy
Port of Portland
      <p align="left"><strong>ABOUT THE PROGRAM:</strong><br />

The House of Representatives recently took historic action to rein in global warming pollution and jumpstart America's clean energy industries by passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act. This bill invests in energy that can’t ever spill or run out, will create millions of jobs at home and around the country, and protect our planet for future generations. At a time when Oregon is faced with record unemployment, this legislation will spur innovation and make an immediate difference in the electric, construction, and engineering sectors.

Earlier in June, Congressman Blumenauer spent seven days in China with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a bi-partisan delegation of colleagues from the House of Representatives on the need to address global warming. He will discuss the changes that China has made to adjust its policies to be more environmentally sensitive, and the realization that China and the world cannot afford to follow the path of the first industrial revolution.


Congressman Earl Blumenauer's academic training includes undergraduate and law degrees from Lewis and Clark College in Portland.

Elected to the US House of Representatives in 1996, Mr. Blumenauer has created a unique role as Congress' chief spokesperson for Livable Communities. From 1996 - 2003, he served on both the International Relations Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Now a member of the Ways and Means Committee and the Budget Committee, Congressman Blumenauer also serves as Vice Chair of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

Tickets: $20 members, $30 non-members, $15 students
