Now in its thirteenth year, CHINA Town Hall (CTH) has provided Americans across the country a more nuanced
understanding of the implications of China’s rise for U.S.-China relations and for their own communities. 
The National Committee works with a wide range of institutions and community groups, including but not limited to colleges and universities, world affairs councils, trade and business associations, social clubs or religious organizations – i.e. any local entity that wishes to gather a group of people to listen to the national webcast and then run a local program in conjunction with it.


Moderator: George Stephanopoulos, Chief Anchor of ABC News

Steve Orlins, President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations

Melanie Hart, Senior Fellow and Director for China Policy at the Center for American Progress.

Yasheng Huang, Epoch Foundation Professor of International Management, MIT Sloan School of Management

Ely Ratner, Executive Vice President and Director of Studies at the Center for a New American Security
