Dr. Li Shenhua, Chairman and Founder of Huaxing Glass, was finally honoured with the 2020 Phoenix Award. In that same year, he had been named the “Glass Person of the Year 2020.” Mr. Li’s recognition marked the 50th award bestowed by the Phoenix Award Committee (PAC), making it particularly significant.
Unfortunately, due to global COVID travel restrictions, the PAC had been unable to present him with the award earlier.
To rectify this, PAC members traveled to Xiamen, China, to have Kevin Lievre PAC Chair 2020 personally present the Phoenix Glass Bird (crafted from Steuben glass) to Mr. Li. The award ceremony took place at a banquet held in the Waldorf Astoria in the Xiamen Peninsula coastal area.
