Sept. 16 IIR Colloquium Series Presents U.S.-China Relations: How Changes to Trade and Immigration Affect Both Countries

September 16, 2019

Johnson Center A

George Mason University, Fairfax, VA

4:00-5:30pm

 

After the Trump administration announced the decision to impose tariffs on Chinese goods worth billions of dollars, China responded by imposing its own set of tariffs on American products. The current trade war, as well as new immigration restrictions, can substantially alter relations between the United States and China. These policies affect the free movement of goods and people, and that can have major implications for the economy, tourism, international students, and businesses. On September 16, the IIR will host a panel of experts discussing the impact of recent policy changes for the U.S. and China and the future of U.S.-China relations.

Speakers include Dan Griswold of the Mercatus Center, Megan Essaheb of Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Sean Lin of the Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Fairfax, and the IIR’s own Professor James Witte.

All are invited to attend! For more information on this and other IIR events, go to https://iir.gmu.edu/about/iir-events.
