The Event

The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations is pleased to announce that Ambassador Susan E. Rice will be the national webcast speaker for our eleventh annual CHINA Town Hall. Her decades of public service and critical role in developing and executing the Obama administration's policies towards China make her special perspective on the bilateral relationship. After the webcast, Travis Tanner, President of the U.S.-China Strong Foundation will lead an off-the-record panel discussion on the future of U.S.-China relations with leaders from the business and academic community.


Ambassador Susan E. Rice served President Barack Obama as national security advisor and U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations. In her role as national security advisor, Ambassador Rice led the National Security Council staff and chaired the Cabinet-level National Security Principals Committee. She provided the President daily national security briefings and was responsible for coordinating the formulation and implementation of all aspects of the administration's foreign and national security policy, intelligence, and military efforts.


The language of the event will be English.
