A few years ago, at the request of the Chinese Consul General in Houston, I (Len Chaikind) attended a planning session at Rice University, where we met with representatives of two universities in Tianjin plus a group called TEDA. Rice is putting together a Center for Sustainability with the two Tianjin Universities and TEDA is also closely involved with this Center.
In 2002, TEDA was proclaimed by Fortune Magazine as the most admired industrial park in China. However, developments in this area seem to have gone much slower since then. At this point, ICC is not doing any projects with TEDA, but we would be very open to working with them given the right opportunity.
