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 issues in the relationship with leading experts. The ninth annual CHINA Town Hall was held on October 5, 2015.
The 2015 program featured a live webcast panel discussion with Robert Rubin, Secretary of the Treasury under President Bill Clinton; Sheldon Day, Mayor, Thomasville, Alabama; Daniel Rosen, Founding Partner, Rhodium Group; and Stephen Orlins, President, National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. Earlier this year, the National Committee published a report with Rhodium Group on Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States by congressional district. Read the full report and find out how much Chinese investment is in your congressional district.
The panel discussed Chinese FDI in the United States. The webcast was followed by local presentations at venues across the country by on-site China specialists addressing topics of interest to the local community. Each program was co-sponsored by the National Committee and a local host. CHINA Town Hall is generously underwritten by the Starr Foundation.
