This year’s webcast, sponsored by the National Committee on U.S. and China Relations, features former Ambassador Susan E. Rice, former national security advisor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Minnesota State Mankato’s Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship is one of approximately 80 locations throughout the United States at which the webcast will be shown.

From 6-7 p.m., former Ambassador Rice will lead a discussion on America’s economic, political and security relations with China in the 11th annual national webcast discussion, “CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections.” Stephen Orlins, president of the National Committee on U.S. and China Relations, will moderate the discussion.

After the webcast with Rice, Susan Shifflett, country manager for East Asia for the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, will join from 7-8 p.m. for on-site reflection and dialogue entitled “Soy What? What China’s Growing Appetite Means for U.S. Agriculture.”

The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations conducts this annual webcast to help Americans better understand the complex U.S.-China relationship. According to the committee, China’s rapid emergence as a global player and potential partner on many U.S. policy priorities has ensured that the Sino-American relationship will have a direct impact on the lives of nearly everyone in both countries.
