“China’s rapid development and Sino-American relations have a direct impact on the lives of just about everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections, is a national day of programming designed to provide Americans across the United States and beyond the opportunity to discuss issues in the relationship with leading experts.”
Carolina China Network is pleased to announce that Dr. Henry A. Kissinger will be the national webcast speaker for our tenth annual CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections, to be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. In addition to his years as national security advisor (1969-1975) and secretary of state (1973-1977), Dr. Kissinger has also taught at Harvard University and is currently chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc., an international consulting firm. While national security advisor, Dr. Kissinger played a crucial role in arranging President Nixon’s 1972 visit to China, which opened the door to the re-establishment of U.S.-China relations. His many decades of efforts to strengthen the Sino-American relationship are why we can think of no better person to serve as our CHINA Town Hall speaker as we mark the National Committee’s 50th Anniversary in 2016.
