    A U.S.-China Subnational Symposium was held at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, April 23-24, 2019, organized jointly by the National Committee, the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of Michigan, and the Michigan-China Innovation Center. The first in an expected ongoing series of similar meetings, the symposium brought together over 30 officials from 25 U.S. states who work on China issues in the areas of trade and investment, education, culture, agriculture, and development. In this time of heightened tensions in the U.S.-China relationship, the symposium sought to educate, foster coordination, and develop best practices among participants.

    Administered by the Committee from 1981 to 2015, the Fulbright-Hays Seminars Abroad Program sent American pre-collegiate and college-level educators to several cities in China for 4-5 weeks each summer. It offered an opportunity to gain valuable, first-hand insights into a country that has become an important element in American education across the curriculum. Through the intensive program of briefings and site visits, educators enhanced their ability to teach about Chinese culture, history, politics, economics, and other areas.
