Presented by Henry Yu: East-West Bank Senior Vice President
Sunday, April 22, 5:00p.m.
Chef Liu: 5283 Buford Hwy. Doraville, GA 30340
The USCPFA Atlanta is trying a new format for our annual Spring Forum which combines a intimate lecture with one our favorite group activities, dining out. Members and interested newcomers will meet at Chef Liu at 5:00 pm and Henry Yu will give a lecture on his recent experiences in China and his thoughts on the future of US – China relations with an emphasis on financial and trade markets. The lecture will be followed by a delicious three course meal and a chance for discussion.

About Henry Yu: Yu, an Atlanta-based banker whose major interest is in international business and cooperation, has recently returned from three years working in China. At the forum Mr. Yu will discuss his experiences and observations that moved him from skeptical to positive about directions in China’s development.   
            Besides his professional life, Mr. Yu has made great contributions to many community and academic organizations. He served as president of NACA (National Association of Chinese-Americans) and now is chairman of NACA’s advisory board. He has been a Foundation Board trustee at Georgia Perimeter College and on advisory boards to build Asian Studies at Kennesaw State University. He is recognized as one of the most influential Asians in the Southeastern United States.

About Chef Liu: Chef Liu, the restaurant, started its life as a hole-in-the-wall establishment located in a former Photomat in Pinetree Plaza. Its delicious cuisine attracted devoted diners who raved about the food on Atlanta food blogs. As a result of its popularity, the restaurant relocated to a more aesthetically pleasing storefront at the north end of the same plaza.
        Chef Liu offers xiao chi, “small eats,” as well as delicious home-style dishes. The small eats on the April 22 menu will include a delicious wine marinated chicken served chilled; the soup will be classic wonton with pork dumplings, ginger, and wood ear in a light chicken broth. Among the main course dishes will be pork with garlic sauce and cumin lamb.

The $15 cost per person includes tax and tip. Tea is free, and beer, Chinese baiju, and wine may be purchased individually.
