Indiana Mayors Invited to Chicago by China Consul

The Consul General of the People’s Republic of China to Chicago, His Excellency Ping Huang (right), will host a group of Indiana Mayors for a first of its kind meeting and lunch at his Chicago consulate on 18 January (Monday), reports Inside INdiana Business.

Five Mayors from Indiana’s North Central Region have been invited to travel to Chicago to meet with the Chinese Consul General and his staff: Mayor Sharon McShurley of Muncie, Mayor Bruce Hosier of Portland, Mayor Wayne Seybold of Marion, Mayor Mike Fincher of Logansport, and Mayor Jason Thompson of Monticello.

This event is the result of the joint collaboration of the Confucius Institute at Purdue University, Purdue’s Center For International Business, Education and Research, and Larry Ingraham, an international consultant and member of the Purdue CIBER advisory committee, who is now representing The Sagamore Institute For Policy Research, based in Indianapolis.
