Five former U.S. ambassadors to China appeared together in a program for the first time at an unforgettable National Committee event Once Upon a Time in Beijing, held at the New York Life building on December 9. The program, aired on the C-SPAN network, featured ambassadors Winston Lord (1985-89), James Lilley (1989-91), Joseph Prueher (1999-2001), J. Stapleton Roy (1991-95), and James R. Sasser (1996-99).  In an exchange moderated by National Committee president Stephen Orlins, the ambassadors candidly reflected on the challenges, excitement, crises and achievements of their tenures, and shared insights on the future of U.S.-China relations.
