LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — On February 24th, coinciding with the kickoff of entertainment industry Oscar parties, a delegation consisting of top officials from the Tianjin Municipal Government led by Tianjin Vice Mayor Cui Jindu, senior executives from The Tianjin Innovative Finance Investment Company (TIFI), China Investment Corporation (CIC), and The Yintai Group, will attend a dinner hosted by Joan Dangerfield (Rodney’s widow) and Justin Han of the Opus 73 Group.
Last week’s visit by China’s Vice President Xi Jinping laid the groundwork for the event which will introduce Hollywood industry VIPs to this group of financial leaders from China. The mission of this official visit to Hollywood is to explore joint ventures and partnerships, as well as projects of mutual economic and cultural benefit. Business tycoon Kirk Kerkorian and multi-award winning music producer David Foster are among the confirmed attendees, which also include financiers, studio executives, award winning directors and actors. The event will take place at the Hollywood Hills home of Joan Dangerfield.
The spotlight at this event will be focused on the continued development of the “Binhai New Area” of Tianjin, the port city neighboring Beijing, which has been earmarked by China’s Central Government as their next engine of economic development. Yujiapu is the financial center of the Binhai New area which has attracted investments and partnerships from Fortune 500 companies all around the world, including a $2 Billion USD joint venture with the Rockefeller family spearheaded by Chairman Li Bo of the Tianjin Innovative Finance Investment Company (TIFI) to construct their International Financial Center in the heart of Yujiapu.
Last year Lincoln Center announced they are providing advisory services in connection with building a world-class performing arts complex in Yujiapu and a state-of-the-art exhibition center furthering the goal to establish Tianjin as a leader of entertainment and the arts in Asia.
The Binhai New Area is a Special Economic Zone consisting of 9 zones spanning 876.5 square miles in land area (ten times the size of Manhattan) that is a priority for economic development by the Chinese government. A focal point of the project is the construction of the Yujiapu Financial District, which upon completion is anticipated to become the largest financial district in the world.
Joining the delegation are Opus 73 strategic partners Marcelo Carvalho d’Andrade, founder of Pro-Natura International who will be attending in support of Tianjin’s eco sustainable city plan, and Regina Rubino of Image Global Vision as Opus 73’s global branding partner.
Opus 73 is a Beverly Hills consulting firm founded by partners Joan Dangerfield and Justin Han. Leveraging decades of experience, well forged relationships, as well as international business and marketing expertise, Opus 73 is working with The Tianjin Innovative Finance Investment Company (TIFI) to identify and facilitate partnerships, marrying companies and brands with the Yujiapu Financial District in the city of Tianjin.
