Greetings:

While I wish I could greet you with a more upbeat Happy Spring salutation, I do not wish to be presumptuous recognizing that the transition from winter to spring in Minnesota can be quite uncertain especially when many are concerned with the floods that may develop, but spring is definitely in the air.

The staff of ChinaInsight also extends its sincere condolences to the people of Japan that has suffered an unimaginable disaster. While it is an economically viable nation with adequate infrastructure to deal with the aftermath, it has been estimated that it could take well over $300 billion to rebuild the nation. Many Minnesota companies and organizations have already provided their support so if you wish to make a contribution, please visit the website of the Japan American Society of Minnesota at www.MN-Japan.org to see how you can participate.

Spring also marks the return of the 4th annual A Passage to China that will be held at Mall of America on April 16 & 17. See back page for complete details on the largest FREE event to be held in the Twin Cities that is devoted exclusively to Chinese culture, history and entertainment. Over 50 organizations will be participating with interactive activities for young and old so get your family, friends and neighbors together or organize an outing for your school or organization. Now you can take a trip to China without any hassle. Everything has been planned and organized...all you have to do is show up.

If you still suffer from "cabin fever", as noted throughout the paper, there are many other events scheduled that include international film festivals, business conferences, plays and other art events. Since it's no fun doing spring cleaning and you can't get out and do any gardening, get out and enjoy some of these activities.

In the meantime, all of us at China Insight wish you well this spring and thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Gregory J. Hugh
