The College of Arts and Sciences Public Affairs Steering Committee is organizing a spring event on Tuesday March 25, 2008 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at CFO 202. The theme of this spring event is: “Eagle and Dragon: Evolving Trade Relations between China and the U.S.” We are inviting three distinguished guest speakers: Director Yao, Consulate General People’s Republic of China, Houston, Mr. James Chen, Executive Regional Director – Asia/Pacific, Office of the Governor, Economic Development, Austin, and Dr. Anil Kumar, Senior Economist, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Director Yao will talk about the U.S.-China relations from cultural and business perspectives. Mr. Chen will give a presentation about the China – Texas trade relations. Dr. Amil will approach the relationship between China and the U.S. from the Federal government policy perspective.
For decades, U.S. and China have recognized the importance of maintaining economic and political ties. Most analysts have characterized present Sino-American relations as complex and multifaceted. Yet, many states’ business communities, including Texas have been showing a strong and enduring business interest in China. The Summer Olympic Games will be held in Beijing, China this year and in 2010 the World Expo will be held in Shanghai. The Spring Public Affairs event will shed light on insight into the U.S. and China trade relations and at the same time, the event will play a role in broadening our horizons from the global perspective. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Hayhurst at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
