1990 Institute Founders

In April 1990, our founders C.B. Sung and Hang-Sheng Cheng had the foresight to establish the Institute as an economic research think tank to help assist China’s modernization.  Today, the 1990 Institute’s mission is to broaden understanding and build trust between the people of the United States and China through education, philanthropy, and collaboration.  Please read more about our history and founders here
