"Harbin Comes in From the Cold"
November 2005
By:  Michael O' Neill

From his hometown in the American Midwest, businessman and entrepreneur Larry P. Horist would appear an unlikely campaigner for the Chinese city of Harbin, But this month, Horist, as president of the Chicago-based Harbin Business Exchange, will be leading a group of American business leaders and potential investors on a 10-day visit to the Heilongjiang provincial capital.  "We have been promoting Harbin for half a decade and I think our efforts have been significant in bringing this city to the attention of the US investment and business community," says Horist,  Under his direction, the Harbin Business Exchange - which among other services operates an online newsletter that already reaches over 18,000 subscribers - has been running trade missions to the city since 2002, introducing business opportunities across a variety of areas including import/export, manufacturing, infrastructure development and more.
