Recorded on 11/15/18.

Four hundred and fifty members and friends, including business, civic, and military leaders, as well as senior American and Chinese diplomats, gathered in New York on November 15 for the National Committee’s annual Gala Dinner.
BlackRock, Inc., a leading asset management firm, was the year’s honoree. Accepting the award was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Laurence D. Fink. BlackRock has made remarkable achievements in China over the past decade, and its dynamic presence will continue to fortify the bilateral relationship going forward. 
In addition to Mr. Fink, Dr. Henry Kissinger, Ambassador Cui Tiankai, and NCUSCR Chair Carla Hills and President Steve Orlins made brief remarks; NCUSCR Vice Chair Evan Greenberg introduced Mr. Fink. Noted jazz singer (and a fellow of the National Committee’s Young Leaders Forum) Jasmine Chen, fresh from her appearance in the summer blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians, entertained the audience with several songs.
