On February 17, 2011, Sujuan He, Chief Representative of Sinopec USA, hosted a chat entitled “At the Forefront of ‘Going Out’” in Manhattan. Ms. He shared her experience in pioneering Chinese companies’ outbound investments
with a group of twelve, including lawyers, bankers, investors, consultants and students. The lively discussion covered various topics including corporate strategy, trading, public relations, oil sands and shale gas. Sinopec is China’s largest oil refiner, largest producer and distributor of chemical products, and second largest producer of crude oil and natural gas. Over the past couple of years, Sinopec consummated China’s largest cross-border acquisition in history ($7.2 billion acquisition of Canada’s Addax Petroleum, with assets in West Africa and the Middle East) and second largest cross-border acquisition ($7.1 billion acquisition of 40% of the Brazilian assets of Repsol SA of Spain). This chat was organized by CBLA’s George Hang and Alex Hao.
