London, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2015 -- More than 500 business leaders, representatives of government, media and academic institutions will converge in New York for the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Committee of 100. The celebration will feature a one day Summit on 10th April at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. During the Summit, top thought leaders will explore crucial issues with respect to the US-China relations as well as the Chinese-American community. Selected members of the Committee of 100 will share inspirational stories of their journey in the US as Americans of Chinese descent.

Victoria Global, LDJ Capital and The Soho Loft Media Group Founder and Chairman David Drake ( says, "Global economics like those of China and Europe have an impact on the U.S. economy. For instance, the U.S. did not expect the sudden move to lower exchange rates by China in November 2014. However, when China took this step, it affected exchanges across the globe in a positive way."
