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 these issues with leading experts. The national program consists of a live webcast, featuring Madeleine Albright, the 64th United States Secretary of State, discussing U.S.-China relations. National Committee on U.S.-China Relations President Stephen A. Orlins will moderate this 45-minute portion of the program, comprised of a 15-minute talk followed by half an hour during which Secretary Albright will respond to questions emailed in from audience members throughout the country.
Yale University held a special local panel discussion following the webcast, featuring Jamie P. Horsley (Senior Research Scholar in Law, Executive Director, China Law Center, and Lecturer in Law, Yale Law School), Wang Xingzui (Yale World Fellow and Vice President, China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation), and Edward Wittenstein (Lecturer in Global Affairs and Executive Director, Johnson Center for the Study of American Diplomacy, Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, Yale University). The event and panel was moderated by Deborah S. Davis (Professor of Sociology, Yale University).
