Georgia Official's China VIP Trip Scores Sino-American Agreement

Atlanta, Georgia, April 28, 2010
...Mr. Asante Bradford, the Digital Entertainment Liaison for the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development was invited to visit Zhengzhou College of Economics of Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, The Peoples’ Republic of China as one of four VIP members of Dr. Fred DiUlus’ Delegation of American experts in their fields in December.  DiUlus is the CEO and Founder of Global Academy Online, Inc. a Washington DC based university builder.


Mr. Bradford and other members of the DiUlus VIP delegation were invited as guests of Zhengzhou City local government officials and hosted by the Zhengzhou College of Economics, one of the provinces most dynamic new universities.  The goal of the VIP Delegation was to promote bilateral, long-term educational and economic cooperation for both Zhengzhou College of Economics and the City of Zhengzhou. Mr. Bradford states, “The Zhengzhou city and Provincial officials are eager to work with us to develop areas of mutual interests and long term opportunities.” Currently, Bradford promotes the growth of the entertainment industry in Georgia.


As a guest of the City of Zhengzhou and Zhengzhou College of Economics, Mr. Bradford and other members of the VIP delegation were treated with a welcoming ceremony upon their arrival followed with important tours of the Zhengzhou National Economic Technological Development Area (known as ZEDA), Zhengzhou’s Erqi District, the existing “downtown” core zone of Zhengzhou, and the world famous Shaolin Temple. As a guest of the Shaolin, Mr. Bradford took part in the first negotiations to forge a cooperative venture between the ancient organization and companies in Georgia.


The result of Bradford’s visit helped ensure the cooperative development between the Shaolin Temple and Atlanta based game design firm Entertainment Arts Research, Inc. Bradford. According to VIP team leader, Dr. DiUlus, was an integral part of the negotiating team, first in China and then in the US in late January. The results, inked at the Shaolin Temple in February, helped bring a twelve-year contract for EARI to produce exclusive edutainment products for the Shaolin. The education and entertainment products are to be distributed throughout the world. It is estimated by the state that up to 50 new jobs will be created in Georgia as a result while offering future opportunities for new business development both in China and in the state of Georgia.


According to Dr. DiUlus, Mr. Bradford has become an important liaison for China officials and companies, particularly in Central China, to seek out and examine the myriad opportunities Georgia provides.
