Because the 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party is scheduled for the same week as our “Finding Solutions” conference, a number of China-based participants were forced to withdraw from the conference. We have postponed “Finding Solutions” until April 6, 2018. The focus of the event is still on the work of individuals, companies, and NGOs to address some of China’s pressing challenges. We apologize for any inconvenience this postponement causes. We hope you will be able to join this important discussion on April 6.
The USC U.S.-China Institute presents a talk by Michael Meyer, whose last book in his China trilogy tells a story both deeply personal and universal as he captures what it feels like to learn a language, culture and history from the ground up.
Please join the USC U.S.-China Institute for a presentation by Wei Yen (厳序纬), author and veteran businessman, to examine Chinese outbound investment and how American businesses can take advantage of China’s rise to forge win-win partnerships.
