Visit to Xiangyang City, Hubei

In mid-January, 2013, a delegation of financial experts was invited to visit Xiangyang City, Hubei Province, to evaluate investment opportunities.

The delegation was sponsored by Baimeng Group, a major civic developer. The trip was organized by the Zhou Enlai Peace Institute, and by America-China Bridge, led by Zhou Xiao Fang and Michael North.

Featured presentations were the first introduction to China of the original finance concept, Royalty Exchange, given by renowed author Arthur Lipper and his wife, Anni Lipper. Woodlake Advisors, a New York private equity firm represented by its General Partner, Sam Seraphim, discussed how international finance can play a role in Baimeng’s expansion plans.

Ni Weidong, the dynamic chairman of Baimeng, personally welcomed the delegation, with his Chief Financial Officer, Li Jiamin, Beijing Office directors, Tu Dongsheng and Li Shuai. Officials of Xiangyang and Hubei Province also attended the briefings, to assess the possibility of establishing the first public Royalty Exchange in Hubei.
