The Chairman of Fuyao Glass Industry Group is Cho Tak Wong, who was named the 2016 Phoenix Committee Glass Person of the Year award.

A film produced by the former U.S. president and first lady, Barack and Michelle Obama's production company was nominated for an Oscar award. "I like this film for its nuanced, honest portrayal of the way a changing global economy plays out in real lives. This is exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve through Higher Ground". "We can't wait to see these projects come to life - and the conversations they'll generate".

"And it's why Michelle and I were drawn to Higher Ground's first film, American Factory".

The Obamas' Higher Ground production company is also set to release a children's show for preschoolers called Listen to Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents, a narrative film adaptation of the biography Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom and a new series from Nashville creator Callie Khouri called Bloom.

"The Obama administration's auto bailout highly favored the UAW and its members; the GM plant in Moraine was unionized by the IUE-CWA", Turner wrote in The Wall Street Journal.

"Glad to see American Factory's Oscar nod for Best Documentary", the former president tweeted.
