About the President
Sheng-Wei Wang is a scholar, writer, entrepreneur, media figure and political activist. She was born in Taiwan. She graduated from National Tsing Hua University with a B.S. degree in Chemistry and earned a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Chemical Physics from the University of Southern California in 1976. She was awarded an Alexander Von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship in 1977-78 to further her research work in Munich University under the guidance of Professor Gerhard Ertl, the 2007 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry. She became a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory after many years of scientific research at Caltech and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Prior to founding in 2006 the China-U.S. Friendship Exchange, Inc., in Northern California, and co-founding in 2007 the Golden Happiness Ltd. in Hong Kong, she was also a self-made California real estate developer for 15 years.
She considered herself nonpolitical until Taiwan’s 2004 presidential election with its shooting incident. She then used her physics research skills to write a JFK-conspiracy-exposé arguing that President Chen Shui-bian’s minor skin wound must have been staged. She briefed the U.S. State Department about her findings in May 2004 and was interviewed on TV. This investigation made her a well-known Chinese-American media figure.
In order to strive for peace across the Taiwan Strait, she is devoting her efforts to China’s peaceful reunification. She has sent monthly newsletters to the U.S. Congressional members from 2005 to promote cross-strait reunification and good Sino-U.S. relations. She publishes her articles in both Chinese and English and has been interviewed by Chinese Dialogue360 TV on 6/15/07, 6/18/07, 11/30/07 and 12/03/07 (see www.dialogue360.net). She was interviewed by Dr. Gianni Hayes’ Radio Show on 2/27/08 from 9:00 to 10:00 PM EST.
Her translated English book, "One Country, Two Systems" in Taiwan (a Chinese book by Taiwanese writer Hsing Chi), was published in the U.S. in 2006 by International Publishing House for China's Culture. Her earlier article, "The Answer My Friend Is Blowing in the Wind," was published in the ELM magazine on February 1, 2006. Her recent essays, "For Whom the Bell May Toll?" and "The Blue Danube on Gulangyu Islet," appeared in American Chronicle's May 1 and May 12, 2007, issues. Her second English book, China's Ascendancy: Opportunity or Threat? was published in October 2007 by International Publishing House for China's Culture. The second edition has received excellent reviews from world experts and has come out in April 2008. It will be marketed by the world's largest B&T book distributor and online bookstore Amazon.com.
