In 2019, the National Committee established a new Track II dialogue between the United States and China to discuss issues relating to the digital economy, in partnership with the Guanchao Cyber Forum, a division of Chinese Internet Security Conference. The dialogue focuses on changes affecting corporations doing business globally and on finding ways that American and Chinese companies can cooperate to address these concerns. 

The dialogue participants are evenly divided between the United States and China, and are experts in the field, along with corporate representatives from different industrial sectors. The United States team is led by Admiral Dennis Blair, former director of national intelligence and a member of NCUSCR's Board of Directors, and Michael Chertoff, former secretary of Homeland Security. The leader of the Chinese delegation is Major General Hao Yeli (ret.), president of the Guanchao Cyber Forum and vice president of the China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy.

At the conclusion of each dialogue, the two sides develop a consensus agreement, documenting areas of discussion and recommendations to both nations. The National Committee shares this document with relevant agencies and offices in both governments.
