Jeremy Haft, CEO of SafeSource Trading

Author of All the Tea in China and Unmade in China 






For two decades, Jeremy Haft has been building companies on the front lines in China. He has overseen hundreds of sourcing and import/export programs between American and Chinese enterprises in a wide variety of industries and agriculture, spanning shipbuilding and refineries to auto parts and medical supplies to maple syrup and cowhides. Haft’s current start-up is a public-private partnership, funded by a grant from the Empire State Development Corporation, to build export markets in China for New York agriculture.  Prior to his China work, Haft was a founder of one of the first Internet ad agencies in New York City, which was ranked in the country’s top five and acquired in 1997.  An adjunct professor at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business, he is the author of All the Tea in China, a primer on how to do business in China, and the recent Unmade in China, which examines America’s enduring competitive advantages over China in the coming century.  He has conducted many briefings about China trade and U.S. competitiveness to members of Congress, ambassadors, senior military officers, and the business community.  His analysis has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, US News and World Report, NPR, BBC, and cable news, among other media outlets.
