A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
Fifth Annual 21st Century China Symposium
University of Hawaii-Manoa presents their fifth annual China symposium with the theme of increasing trust in US-China Relations, featuring keynote speaker Daniel Piccuta.
The 21st Century China Symposium has its finger on the pulse of China in many diverse ways. Dan Piccuta, who just retired as the Charges D'Affairs at the US Embassy in Beijing will be one of our keynote speakers at the Fifth Annual 21st Century China Symposium. His expertise and background make him the perfect choice to address the complicated issues effecting US-China Relations. Hear his reflections on US-China Relations and his take on the new US Ambassador to China, Utah Governor John Huntsman.
Dan has recently traveled with the top leaders of China to the earthquake memorial held in remembrance of those who lost their lives. He has been in high level meetings with all of China's leadership and knows China very well. His presence at the Symposium alone is an incredible chance for you to understand China much better and avoid mistakes when dealing with China on any level, whether it be business, military, government or tourist.
Plan now to attend and hear what Dan Piccuta has to say firsthand.
