Robert Goodman is Building Bridges

The purpose of Bob Goodman's Sino-American Trade Development Association is to bridge the gap between China and the U.S., help American entrepreneurs and government officials find investment and development partners, and gain a deeper understanding of China and its culture. The association will also facilitate the entry of Chinese government officials and entrepreneurs into the U.S. marketplace.

SATDA was sponsored by experts on the Sino-U.S. economy and established in America in 1991. Since then the association has been promoting communication and trade between China and America.

Since the association was established it has received supportive letters from U.S. President Bill Clinton, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Ronald H. Brown, and enthu-siastic Senators, Representatives, and Governors.

The present chairman of the association, Mr. Robert E. Goodman has devoted himself to promoting communications between China and the U.S. since 1976. In 1983 Mr. Goodman was one of the first pioneers to bring government officials of the U.S. Commerce Department and entrepreneurs to China. His was the first company to invite American companies to attend the Canton Fair in 1985, and he also invited a Chinese Mayor's delegation to visit the U.S. in 1993.
