CHINA Town Hall is a national day of programming on China involving 70 cities throughout the United States. The Ninth Annual China Town Hall will open with a webcast, this year a panel discussion focusing on the findings of a new report by the National Committee and Rhodium Group on the recent growth of Chinese foreign direct investment in the United States. The report, titled “New Neighbors: Chinese Investment in the United States by Congressional District,” breaks down for the first time Chinese commercial investment in the United States by congressional district.
Former Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin, Mayor Sheldon Day (Thomasville, Alabama), and Mr. Daniel Rosen, founding partner of Rhodium Group, will discuss the impact of Chinese investment in the United States, including job creation, revitalization of economically depressed areas, infrastructure improvement, and the deepening of ties between the people of the two countries, all of which help strengthen the overall bilateral relationship.
Following the webcast will be an exclusive live presentation by guest speaker, Dr. Robert A. Kapp, President of Robert A. Kapp & Associates and strategic advisor to the U.S.-China Specialty Group at Burson-Marsteller.
The webcast will be moderated by National Committee President Steve Orlins.Visit Event Website for More Info
