The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations is the leading American nonprofit, nonpartisan organization devoted exclusively to building constructive and durable relationships between the United States and Greater China. Since 1966, the National Committee has focused its exchange, educational, and policy programs on politics and security, governance and civil society, economics and finance, education, and transnational issues such as energy and the environment, addressing these issues with respect to mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The Committee’s membership includes more than 700 prominent Americans from all parts of the country, and 50 corporations and professional firms. They represent many viewpoints, but share the belief that productive U.S.-China relations require ongoing public education, face-to-face contact, and the forthright exchange of ideas.
