Now in its thirteenth year, CHINA Town Hall (CTH) has provided Americans across the country a more nuanced understanding of the implications of China’s rise for U.S.-China relations and for their own communities.

The evening will begin with a reception and refreshments (hors d’oeuvre) at 5:15 p.m. The substantive portion of the program will begin at 5:50 p.m. with opening remarks and a live national webcast featuring a discussion to be moderated by George Stephanopoulos, Chief Anchor of ABC News. Panelists will include Mr. Stephen A. Orlins, President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations; Dr. Melanie Hart, Senior Fellow and Director for China Policy at the Center for American Progress; Dr. Yasheng Huang, Epoch Foundation Professor of International Management at MIT’s Sloan School of Management; and Dr. Ely Ratner, Executive Vice President and Director of Studies at the Center for a New American Security.
