C-100’s creativity, cross-cultural insights and powerful corporate network will be great assets to the USA National Pavilion. The Committee’s participation will help ensure the authenticity of our important show component depicting the rich legacy and remarkable achievements of the Chinese community in America. We know that Chinese visitors to our Pavilion will be especially thrilled and proud to know that C-100 is playing a key role in the project.”

The Shanghai World Expo 2010 will be held from May 1-October 31, 2010 with a projected 70 million attendees. This will be China’s debut as host of a world expo. At more than 60,000 square feet, the USA National Pavilion will be one of the largest pavilions at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. It will showcase American culture, values, and businesses in China’s most dynamic city, while at the same time celebrating the friendship between the peoples of the U.S. and China.

Founded in 1989, the Committee of 100 is a national non-partisan, non-profit membership organization comprised of prominent Chinese Americans in a broad range of professions. With members’ knowledge and experience, the Committee has dedicated its efforts to a dual mission: (1) encouraging constructive relations between the peoples of the United States and Greater China, and (2) encouraging the full participation of Chinese Americans in all aspects of American life.
