“Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a real honor for me to be standing here. I say that is because I am from Cleveland, Ohio, where we are known as the number one law firm city in the world – think of Jones Day. In my father’s family, there have been three lawyers and two judges of the State of Ohio. So my life has been attached to law. And I see the function of law contributing to the building of a nation when I consider China. In fact, when I arrived in China in 1985, and was welcomed by leaders of the People’s Republic of China in a way I never could imagine, and when I found out that the reason I was welcomed was because I was Romanian-American, that blew my mind.So this relationship between Romania and China, my grandfather and his grandfather’s relationship with China affected my life forever.
Let me tell you a story about 1985. I was told by Chinese leaders that the most important contributors to the building of this nation were taxi drivers! That the humblest workers were the ones that would build the greatest nation on earth – China.I think about lawyers – how important were lawyers in 1985? Do you know? Zero! In 1985, there were no cars on the roads in China. We were building a new nation. In less than 15 years, there were millions of cars on the roads.
The last 30 years has developed China into the number two economy on earth. You lawyers are the future of not just China’s economy, but a global economy. And in order for that to occur in a powerful and efficient way, China and USA political and business leaders…we have to consolidate, we have to merge.
Today I am humbled, and I can’t understand how God got me here, but I’m very proud of all of you. Doctor [Dr. Tang Jinlong] – I am so proud of you! Jingsh bosses, what you have built in 23 years, Jones Day, the number one law firm in the world took 125 years to do. And now the globe is your responsibility.
What makes me most excited are the young lawyers here, because you are the future of the Jingsh Law Firm. And you must learn by their example [indicating Jingsh leaders]. Grow the firm, grow the nation into the globe!” – Jack Craciun III
Dr. Tang Jinlong has expressed an earnest interest, and has held numerous meetings with his associates and Jack Craciun to establish the “ITM / China Finance and Industry Group Strategic Alliance.” Mr. Craciun has
now returned to the USA for three weeks to lead strategy meetings with US Strategic Alliances Houlihan Capital and Ross Farro Enterprises –in video conference with Dr. Tang and ITM Alliance associate, Jason Xu Li, Chairman of the Maslink Group (www.maslink.com).
While theITM US Alliance leaders are prepared to visit China at the invitation of Dr. Tang and Mr. Li,ITM is also extending the opportunity to Dr. Tang and Mr. Li to visit the US to further discuss ITM China-USA Investment Cross Cultural Exchange Programs and tour Assurance Health Systems facilities and Blaze Pizza restaurants.
