BIG IN CHINA: Vera Wang and Ron Perelman were among the honorees at the China Institute’s annual Blue Cloud gala Thursday night.

The gathering at Cipriani’s lower Broadway location in the Cunard Building was meant to center on the Institute’s commitment to advancing understanding and deepening trust between China and the U.S. Ning Yuan, chairman and president of China Construction America, and Robert Hong Xiao, chief executive officer of Perfect World Co. Ltd. were also honored, as well as New York Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wasn’t able to attend the black tie dinner.

Beforehand, China Institute chairman Chien Chung Pei, better known as “Didi,” said of the honorees, “They share the spirit and mission of China Institute to shape positive and strong U.S.-China relations through education, culture and business.”

China Institute trustees Yue-Sai Kan, the Emmy-winning television host and producer, and Mei He, a recipient of the Eisenhower Foundation International Leadership Award, helped out as emcees. Stuffed panda bears were placed in the bamboo decor, thanks to the evening’s sponsor, Hainan Airlines, which was also celebrating the launch of its Panda Express routes to Chengdu and Chongqing.
