recognized and applauded ACSE's services to the communities and effort to
promote US-China cooperation and economic development. Former Chicago Mayor
Richard Daley said in his greeting letter to ACSE: "the ACSE has
promoted mutually beneficial scientific, economic and culture exchange
between the United States and China... Chicago is the proud beneficiary of a
strong community from China that has played a significant role in the history
of our city and continues to make important contributions to the collective
good of all citizens."
This year is ACSE's 20th anniversary. ACSE has
grown out of her infant stage and becomes stronger. With the ever growing
Chinese-American community in the United States of America and ever
increasing economic ties between China and USA, ACSE will play an even more
important role as a community leader and strong advocator in promoting the
cooperation between US and China, and in building a strong Chinese-American community
to contribute to the mainstream value and society development.
