Stephen Perry – Chairman – 48 Group Club

The 48 Group was founded back in 1952 with the formation of London Export Corporation, leading to the famous Icebreaker Mission of 1953, and the formal founding of the 48 Group in 1954.

The pioneers were Chinese and British committed to reopening trade between China and the West, and assisting in the return of China to being a global nation again.

The leading member of that early group was Jack Perry – 1915-1996 – and Stephen became Chairman in 1994.

The 48 Group has championed trade and investment with China since 1952, and , more recently, has focused on helping corporate leaders and policy makers understand Chinese policies and their impacts and the choices that are thereby offered up. Stephen Perry has been writing about the Silk Roads since 1992, but only in its current comprehensive from since President Xi first enunciated the One Road One Belt in 2013. The 48 Group considers this to be the most significant global development of our era and lays the foundations for win-win cooperation between Asia , Europe and the USA.

Stephen Perry has been Chairman of London Export Corporation for over 30 years and during that time concluded over $2billion of business with China, mainly with the West, and several Joint Ventures in China and outside including the USA and Africa.

Key corporate members of the 48 group such as Linklaters and KPMG play a vital role in enabling the 48 group to sharpen its global understandings, and to play a major role in explaining the Silk Roads.
