China Town Hall 2017 Features Ambassador Susan Rice on Oct. 24

The Confucius Institute at the University of Delaware is in partnership with the National Committee on United-States-China Relations to present the 2017 China Town Hall program. The theme title of the talk is “China and the USA — A Corporate and Industrial Perspective”.

This year’s program will present:

Nationwide Webcast Keynote: Ambassador Susan E. Rice

In addition to her foreign policy experience as national security advisor (2013-2017) and U.S. permanent representative to the UN (2009-2013), Ambassador Rice also served as U.S. assistant secretary of state for African Affairs and senior director for African Affairs at the National Security Council. Her decades of public service and critical role in developing and executing the Obama administration’s policies towards China make her perspective on the relationship especially relevant as we navigate this uncertain time in the bilateral relationship.
