Rockefeller Family in China: Then and Now (Southern China Slidecast 1 of 2)
The 2009 online annual review features two Southern China slidecasts. Included is a discussion with Richard Rockefeller, chair; Wendy O’Neill, trustee; and Stephen Heintz, president of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund about the Rockefeller family’s history in China, and the evolution of the Fund’s Southern China program.
Each year, the annual review focuses on an issue central to the Fund's mission. This year’s cover story, The Climate for U.S.-China Cooperation, centers on the RBF’s Southern China program’s efforts to build understanding and facilitate cooperation between the United States and China in pursuing effective policy and action on energy and climate challenges. With China and the United States accounting for 40 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, the stability of earth’s climate depends on cooperation between the two countries.
