The 19th Annual ASIA NIGHT 2013:

California-Asia Business Council (Cal-Asia) began bestowing the New Silk Road Award at Asia Night in 2003, calling attention to distinguished business and government leaders who have made outstanding contributions to California-Asia business. In previous years, we have honored leaders and visionaries who have pioneered legal, technological, and financial infrastructure improvements or helped lead the way in philantrophy, innovation, entrepreneurship.

Dr. Chong-Moon Lee

Each year, we continue to uphold the tradition, celebrating individuals and organizations that have made tremendous positive impacts to trans-Pacific commercial relations. This year, The New Silk Road Award will be presented to Ms. Weili Dai (left), President and Co-Founder of Marvell Technology Group.  As an entrepreneur (she co-founded Marvell with her husband Dr. Sehat Sutardja), innovator, and philanthropist, Ms. Dai is a driving force in expanding access to technology in the developing world and an ambassador of opportunity between the US and Asia, particularly in the arenas of education and green technology.

Cal-Asia will also celebrate the impressive contributions made to California-Asia commerce by The Bay Area Council which has helped to re‐establish the state's ties with China through its Trade and Commerce Office.
