In that role he worked with U.S. states to foster over $1 billion in Chinese investment in the United States – a record at the time – and introduced dozens of U.S. firms to the Chinese market. He also developed a program that became the model for the U.S.-China Tourism Year, a Presidential initiative to attract Chinese tourists to the United States.

While serving as the first Deputy Chief of Mission in Dili, East Timor, Mr. Stein oversaw the establishment of a new mission and construction of a new embassy.
