Postponed - China: Finding Solutions, April 6, 2018

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.

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.

All those who already registered for the event have the option of having us hold their registrations or receiving a refund of the registration fee. Please contact us at uschina@usc.edu to let us know your preference. 


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.

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.
