Beyond 1993 – Forming FNPL and ACCC in 1993
America/China Chamber of Commerce (ACCC) – 1993-1996
Since Dr. Esther Lee’s（李恕信博士） arrival in the USA back to 1967, her determination to promote mutual understandings between the USA and China has permeated throughout her life and professional records/development. Her graduate courses, bilingual research/publications and services in both private and public sectors at all levels often reflected her interests and commitments to cross-cultural understandings.
With Dr. Lee's teaching and writing credentials in multicultural studies and her personal bicultural/ bilingual background, she was a business consultant on cross-cultural training for both public and private sectors, i.e., FBI, GM, Exxon and Houston Police Academy. Her consultation was well sought after, especially shortly following the opening of the China market in mid-1980s. In viewing the frustration American companies had experienced in the China market, Dr. Lee also published cross-cultural articles in Business Magazine in 1987 and 1988.
Her departure from the tenured position with University of Houston/Clear Lake offered her an opportunity to serve the business community after her appointment with the Bush/Quayle '92 reelection campaign. In the summer of 1993 Dr. Lee founded America/China Chamber of Commerce (ACCC). Under her leadership, several trade delegations went to China for joint-venture opportunities. She also delivered many speeches around the country, including state-sponsored conferences on investment opportunities in China.
