    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.

    China Business Network: Building Green in China

    Wong Kee Restaurant

    Lunch presentation for the China Business Network of the Northwest China Council by Raymond Cheng, LRS Architects Inc., with offices in Portland and Shanghai, China. LRS Architects and Mr. Cheng are currently working on one of the largest sustainable projects being developed in China. The project, located inside Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-tech Park, will consist of more than 2.2 million square feet of development across multiple buildings sharing common sustainable systems. The LRS design team includes additional Portland team member Interface Engineering, who will work closely with LRS to develop advanced sustainable systems for the project. Targeted to become one of the first LEED Platinum certified projects in China and the largest in the world when completed, the development will make use of advanced engineering strategies and integrated sustainable site design to achieve the highest rating from the US Green Building Council. To date, only a handful of projects in China have received any LEED certification. LRS’s efforts support the Chinese government’s focus on environmental concerns and reflect the project owner’s desire to be a pioneer in China’s burgeoning green movement. Raymond will share his expertise in building Portland-China teams, with a focus on exporting our region’s sustainable expertise.
