Governor Huntsman's breadth of service in Asia has been developed over a lifetime of interest and involvement. He has previously lived in Asia four times and speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese. Additionally, his experience in the private sector has been extensive in various senior global positions, including service on other corporate boards.

Commenting on the appointment, Jon M. Huntsman, Sr., Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Huntsman Corporation said, "Jon is regarded with dignity and respect throughout the world. His international and diplomatic experience is well known and admired. He has previously served as Vice Chairman of our Huntsman businesses and thus will contribute enormously as a member of our Board of Directors."
