Lin Fanlin is an executive at the China International Publishing Group (CIPG), a vital operation at the Ministry of Information — one of the largest publishers, website managers and translation groups in China. CIPG employs more than 3000 people. His division, Moze, serves many official events, books, magzazines and sites on the Internet, with translation services in 28 languages.

His wife, Xu Xin, is an executive at the Stone Carving Museum in Beijing, which showcases fascinating stone carvings from China’s imperial history, many of them personally inscribed by the Emperors.

CIPG may open a new office soon in Honolulu, in order to serve clients in America.
