Global China Summit

On September 27, Washington Post Live, in partnership with Oxford Analytica, hosted a Global China Summit at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, DC. This summit brought together leading business, government and academic leaders from China and the United States.  Experts looked at China’s capital and trade flows and its quest for energy, commodities, assets, and skills abroad.  Is the U.S. ready for the next phase of Chinese engagement?  What does China’s move to diversify out of Treasury bonds and into assets mean for the U.S. and U.S. business?  We also discussed the new and future China: What is it like to live and work in China these days? How does it vary in different regions of the country?  We focused on youth  -- their outlook, lifestyle, growing wealth  -- and discussed the ongoing social change in this country of 1.3 billion and why it matters to the rest of the world.
