The Pacific Century Institute established the Building Bridges Award in 2000 to honor people who have enhanced relations between Americans and Asians and who exemplify PCI's commitment to building bridges to a better future.

Every year, academics, policy makers, journalists and interested individuals come together at an annual dinner to give out this prestigious award and to celebrate the dedication and the accomplishments of the recipient.
