Event Details

*This event is for Chairman's Circle members and Policy+ subscribers only*

Both the US and China have sought to expand the definition of national security in recent years, with the two sides not always in agreement on the terms. Such discrepancies or even direct contradictions risk further destabilizing the bilateral relationship. At this critical juncture, AmCham China would like to foster a sense of dialogue and mutual understanding among the US-China think tank community. Therefore, the Chamber is pleased to host a US-China Virtual Roundtable with the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations (CICIR) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) on Friday, April 16, from 8:30 AM – 9:45 AM Beijing time (Thursday, April 15, from 8:30 PM – 9:45 PM EST) to discuss the future of US-China strategic competition via Microsoft Teams.

AmCham China Chairman Greg Gilligan will kick off the roundtable with opening remarks, followed by remarks from CICIR President Yuan Peng and CNAS CEO Richard Fontaine. The roundtable will conclude with an hour-long discussion where additional experts from both CICIR and CNAS will exchange views on the topic together with representatives from the Policy+ group.

We recommend all Policy+ subscribing companies to participate. Each company is highly encouraged to send one senior representative (VP-level or above) to participate in the discussion, along with other colleagues who may want to listen in. The deadline to register is noon, Wednesday, April 7 Beijing time.
