China: Finding Solutions
October 20, 2017
USC Tutor Campus Center
China, not unlike the United States, confronts enormous challenges. These include deadly environmental degradation, a rapidly aging population, a skills mismatch between what graduates can do and what employers seek, widespread official corruption, regional and intraregional inequality, and low labor and capital productivity.
Often conferences merely document such problems without exploring in concrete terms what businesses, non-profit organizations, and government agencies are doing to address them. Our China: Finding Solutions conference won’t minimize the size and complexity of such problems, but it will highlight how individuals and institutions are battling them. Our panelists will include distinguished scholars, entrepreneurs, organization leaders, and officials. We invite you to be a part of the discussion.
Space is limited. Register now online or mail in your registration (please include the check, your name, email, and address) to secure your seat and to save money.
