NY Event – China Town Hall – October 18

By , October 13, 2010

Ambassador Jon Huntsman

Don’t miss this year’s “China Town Hall” sponsored by the National Committee on US-China Relations on Monday, October 18 starting at 7 pm.  The China Town Hall is a night of China events, with the keynote address live from Ambassador Jon Huntsman (via webcast).  In its fourth year, this year’s event will likely prove to be the most interesting.  China has become a major campaign issue in the U.S.’ mid-term elections, the trade imbalance does not seem to be improving, currency is still pegged, and China doesn’t seem keen on allowing for greater freedom in the wake of the Nobel Peace Prize award to Liu Xiaobo.  To be sure Ambassador Huntsman will likely address some, if not all, of these issues.

While you can watch the event on your own over the web (here: http://www.ncuscr.org/programs/cth), life is always more fun when you do things with others!  The National Committee is sponsoring various educational institutions across the country to host events and this year, Prof. Maggie Lewis of Seton Hall University School of Law will be hosting a China Town Hall, with Prof. Carl Minzner of Washington University in St. Louis School of Law providing comments and context to what will sure to be an exciting night.  RSVP is required for this event: http://law.shu.edu/About/News_Events/china-town-hall-rsvp.cfm
