Golden Dragon fires up trade opportunities between China and the US
by Kristie Connor, Oregon Entrepreneurs Network 
Danny Yan, started the Golden Dragon International Trade Corp. in 2004 with the dream of developing a company that will one day be the eBay of international trade for both business and consumer transactions between the United States and China. The Golden Dragon currently offers services to both US and Chinese companies that include sourcing, selling, and setting up operations in either country. Mr. Yan’s services provide opportunities for businesses looking to establish and penetrate a new market without the challenges inherent in international business. At the heart of Golden Dragon’s mission is Mr. Yan’s twenty years of experience and knowledge of the US and China market, an established network of contacts and extensive experience in sales and marketing at Fortune 500 companies. The Golden Dragon offers US and Chinese companies a competitive advantage when it comes to US/China commerce.
As a native of China, Mr. Yan, spent the early part of his career in Hong Kong working for Fortune 500 companies such as Nestle and First Telecom. In 2005, Mr. Yan moved to Portland to be near his family and decided to start a company, The Golden Dragon, based on his expertise — knowledge of both Unisted States and China’s culture and business practices.
