China Transition Institute (CTI) is an organization dedicated to training present and future Expat managers and executives to be more effective in China. CTI will be conducting one-week ‘Boot Camps’ to upgrade these Expat's Managing and Living in China throughout the coming year, and beyond. CTI is a natural outgrowth of its predecessor, China Immersion Institute, which has operated inside and just outside Beijing for the past two years. Jim Cook, CTI's Chairman, first came to China in 1985 and was hosted at the Great Hall of the People on that occasion. CTI's President, David Israel-Rosen, from 1985 to 1995, was a partner in an investment bank in Tokyo. Subsequently, he began his interest in China and in 1998, he joined up with Jim and started their first Chinese venture together.
