U.S.-China Business in the New World Order | April 12, 2018 | The Harvard Club

About the 2018 Executive Summit ↓

On April 12, China Institute convened the 2018 Executive Summit, “U.S.-China Business in the New World Order,” featuring former Secretary of Treasury Henry M. Paulson, Jr., Nobelist Joseph Stiglitz, former IMF chief John Lipsky, TKK Chairman Sing Wang, and Under Secretary of Commerce Gilbert Kaplan, alongside many U.S. and Chinese CEOs.

In the midst of heightened U.S.-China trade tensions, speakers discussed the rise of China and challenges and opportunities faced by Chinese businesses investing in the United States and their U.S. counterparts operating in China. “As the United States promotes its America First policy, and China expands its global influence through One Belt One Road, nationalist and populist sentiments in both countries are on the rise,” said China Institute President James Heimowitz. “It’s increasingly important to find practical ways in which businesses can flourish and work together, underpinning the world’s most important bilateral relationship. This conference aims to add nuance to a conversation that is too often portrayed in black and white terms.”
