New Silk Road Award Honors for 2006

Dianne Feinstein
U.S. Senator

California-Asia Business Council (Cal-Asia) will present The New Silk Road Award for 2005 to U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein for outstanding contributions to California-Asia business.

America's commercial relationships with Asia are critically important to this country’s future. Senator Feinstein has taken a leading role in building trust, a prerequisite to commercial cooperation. She has also helped ensure that the complexities of these relationships are well understood among policymakers -- who can then make informed decisions.

Senator Feinstein’s commitment to California-Asia commerce has changed the way the United States interacts, trades and invests with its Asian trade partners, creating increased opportunities for U.S. firms, and better ways for resolving disputes.
