On April 9th, 2012, Dr. Henry Kissinger warmly welcomed Chinese artists at his office in New York, making another major cultural exchange program hosted by the US China Business Association (USCN), following a successful US China Art Exhibition last December. The USCN selected three representatives from East China, North China and South China. They are Mr. Wu Rongchuan from Guangzhou, Ms Guan Shan from Beijing and Jason Mao from Shanghai. Dr. Kissinger carefully reviewed their artworks and highly commended the efforts by the USCN as well as the artists to promote friendship and deepen understanding through cultural and art exchanges.
