China's rapid development and Sino-American relations have a direct impact on the lives of nearly everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall is a national conversation about China that provides Americans across the United States and beyond the opportunity to discuss issues in the relationship with leading experts. Last year, over 80 venues and 100 speakers participated in the program, along with four partner organizations in Greater China.

The eleventh annual CHINA Town Hall took place on October 24, 2017, at 86 venues across the United States and Greater China, and featured Ambassador Susan E. Rice, former national security advisor and U.S. ambassador to the UNas the national webcast speaker. The webcast took place from 7:00 to 7:45 pm EDT, and was preceded or followed by presentations from local speakers at each of the venues.

2017 CHINA Town Hall: Susan Rice

October 24, 2017

Ambassador Susan E. Rice was the national webcast speaker for our eleventh annual CHINA Town Hall, held on October 24, 2017. In addition to her foreign policy experience as national security advisor (2013-2017) and U.S. permanent representative to the UN (2009-2013), Ambassador Rice also served as U.S. assistant secretary of state for African Affairs and senior director for African Affairs at the National Security Council. Her decades of public service and critical role in developing and executing the Obama administration's policies towards China make her perspective on the relationship especially relevant as we navigate this uncertain time in the bilateral relationship. To view Ambassador Rice's full bio please click here.
