China: Finding Solutions
April 6, 2018
USC Tutor Campus Center
Grand Ballroom


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 and low social trust, 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.

关于会议
和美国一样,中国也面临着方方面面的严峻挑战。这些挑战包括:环境严重恶化,老龄人口急剧增长,食品和产品安全,毕业生技能与雇主要求不符,需要增加劳动力和资本的生产力,和地区间及地域内部的不平等。

以往的会议大多仅仅是记录这些问题,而并未具体探讨政府、企业和其他非盈利组织为解决这些问题所付出的努力。本次“中国问题:寻找答案”会议将直面中国问题的严重性和复杂性,并着重展现个人和组织正在如何应对这些问题。参会人员包括杰出学者,企业家,非营利组织领导人和政府官员。我们诚邀您参与讨论。
