March 15, 2014 to March 23, 2014

In March 2014, we sent four members of Congress — the two co-chairs of the U.S.-China Working Group (USCWG), Congressmen Rick Larsen (D-WA) and Charles Boustany (R-LA), along with Congressmen Kenny Marchant (R-TX) and Mike Quigley (D-IL) — on a weeklong trip to Beijing, Xi'an, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong. The delegation was escorted by NCUSCR President Stephen Orlins, Fordham Law Professor Carl Minzner (a fellow in NCUSCR's Public Intellectuals Program), and Terra Sabag and Florie Knauf, senior Hill staffers working in the offices of the USCWG co-chairs. The delegation focused its attention on the economic reforms outlined in the Third Plenum, the U.S.-China military/security relationship, and the current environment for U.S. businesses operating in China.

The National Committee regularly sends members of Congress to China, having arranged and escorted eight delegations since 2006. The week-long study tours are designed to educate the congressmen and women about China through personal introductions to senior Chinese leaders and a range of informative site visits and meetings.
