In all his business ventures, Harvey Goldstein has sought to encourage foreign direct investment in the developing markets of Southeast Asia. As an educator and philanthropist, Mr. Goldstein has also sought to bring educational opportunities to the communities his businesses serve. His work as chairman of the Southeast Asia Advisory Group of Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) has allowed him to provide some of these opportunities.
Harvey Goldstein sees internationalization as key to economic growth in Southeast Asia. His work with the advisory group - and his personal support of CTY through scholarships to financially disadvantaged, academically gifted Singapore students - help prepare the region for increased international business by preparing these students to become future business leaders.
