China's rapid development and Sino-American relations have a direct impact on the lives of just about everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections, is a national day of programming designed to provide Americans across the United States and beyond the opportunity to discuss these issues with leading experts. The seventh annual CHINA Town Hall was held on October 28, 2013, at 64 venues from around the United States, plus two more in Greater China.


The National Committee is pleased to present this program, which featured a live webcast with Madeleine Albright, the 64th United States Secretary of State, followed by local presentations from on-site China specialists addressing topics of particular interest to the community. Each program is co-sponsored by the National Committee and a local organization(s). CHINA Town Hall is generously underwritten by the Starr Foundation.
