Four Decades of Business in and with China: Reflecting Back, Looking Forward

Presenter / Panelists

Merritt (Terry) Cooke, Founding Director, China Partnership of Greater Philadelphia and Steve Markscheid, Chairman, Still Waters Green Technology


Kerin Cantwell, Director and Managing Attorney, Southern California Edison Company

Please join us for another “living history” conversation, this time focused on business in and with China, as two pioneers in the China-US finance and business sectors, Terry and Steve, look back over the past four decades, and contemplate what the present day portends for the future. Both Steve and Terry coincidentally have shared a commitment to sustainability, whether clean technology or renewable energy. The moderator for this conversation, Kerin, has been a pathbreaker in this area, as well.

Steve and Terry will reflect on their first decades working in China, in the 1980’s and 1990’s. They will ponder the remarkable trajectory of China’s economic development, including the transformation of finance, business, and trade, and how doing business in China has evolved as the technological, as well as geopolitical, balance of power has shifted. As they consider the present day, Terry and Steve will gaze forward and share thoughts about the future.
