Mr. James Chao, founder of Foremost Group, his daughters Ms. Elaine Chao, former U.S. Secretary of Labor, and Ms. Angela Chao, Deputy Chairman of Foremost Group, will discuss the differences between eastern and western education and the importance of cultural exchange and interaction between them, drawing from their own unique life experiences and their family history as champions of US-China cultural and educational exchanges.

Born in Shanghai, James S.C. Chao has dedicated his life to shipping, trading and finance beginning with his study of navigation in China. In 1964, Dr. Chao founded Foremost Maritime Corporation, developed it to the current Foremost Group, and remains as Chairman to this day. Today, Foremost Group, headquartered in New York City, is an established, highly respected American organization which enjoys a sterling reputation worldwide for reliability, professionalism and high ethical standards.

Elaine Chao, the 24th U. S. Secretary of Labor who served from 2001-2009, is the first American woman of Asian descent to be appointed to a President’s Cabinet in our nation’s history.  She is the longest tenured Secretary of Labor since World War II, and the only member of President Bush’s original cabinet to have served the entire eight years of his Administration.

Angela Chao brings her years of experience in the international trade and shipping industries to audiences throughout America, Europe and Asia, engaging them on the subjects of education, corporate leadership, international finance and shipping & transportation.
