LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 31st Anniversary of the Flush-
ing Chinese Business Association

WHEREAS, Since its formation in 1982, the Flushing Chinese Business
Association (FCBA) has helped to foster harmony and cross-cultural
understanding in Queens, the most ethnically diverse county in the
United States; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commem-
orate the 31st Anniversary of the Flushing Chinese Business Association
(FCBA); and
WHEREAS, For 31 years, the FCBA and its leaders have served the Flush-
ing business community with distinction and fostered an appreciation of
Chinese culture and heritage throughout Queens; and
WHEREAS, Chinese Americans have made many contributions to the commu-
nity, paving the way for new Americans to become successful and adapt to
their new home, while maintaining their Chinese cultural heritage; and
WHEREAS, On Friday, January 25, 2013, the FCBA will celebrate this
milestone at its Annual Fundraising Dinner, and will usher in the year
4711, the Year of the Snake; and
WHEREAS, 2013 is the Year of the Water Snake and is an auspicious sign
as people born in the Year of the Water Snake are lucky with finances
and always seem to attract money; are adventurous spirits and love to
take risks; are very intelligent and often a wellspring of creative
ideas; and
WHEREAS, Through its programs and events which foster commercial and
economic development, promote Asian culture and the arts, contribute to
the well-being of the large Asian immigrant community through education
and business development, the FCBA has been a major force in the econom-
ic revival that has transformed downtown Flushing into one of the city's
most vibrant neighborhoods; and
WHEREAS, Under the luminous direction of President, Liu Tee Shu and
Executive Director, Peter Tu, the Flushing Chinese Business Association
is a respected and significant part of the community and a valuable
asset to Queens and New York City; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals (associations) of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought
to our attention, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the
citizens of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 31st Anniversary of the Flushing Chinese Business Asso-
ciation; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Liu Tee Shu, President of the Flushing Chinese Business Asso-
ciation, and Peter Tu, Executive Director.
