George Mason University, together with the National Committee on US-China Relations (NCUSCR), will convene the Sixth Annual CHINA Town Hall: Local Connections, National Reflections on Monday, October 29, 2012. The event will take place in the Johnson Center Cinema on Mason's Fairfax Campus.
China's rapid development and US-China relations directly impact the lives of just about everyone in the United States. CHINA Town Hall is a national program at fifty sites across the country designed to give Americans the opportunity to discuss these issues with leading China experts.
The evening will begin with a reception and light refreshments at 7:15 p.m. The program itself will begin at 8 p.m. with a live webcast featuring Ambassador Gary F. Locke, former Secretary of Commerce and Governor of Washington, who is currently serving as United States Ambassador to the People's Republic of China.
The webcast will be followed by a discussion with our local speaker, Dr. David M. Lampton, the George and Sadie Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at the Johns Hopkins University Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). Dr. Lampton will share his thoughts on the latest developments in China and address questions from the audience.
This event is sponsored locally by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Office of Global Strategies, the Department of History and Art History, the Department of Public and International Affairs, and the Global Affairs Program at George Mason University. National sponsorship is provided by the National Committee on US-China Relations.
