The Minnock Institute for Global Engagement invites you to join BSU, the National Committee on United States-China Relations, and 80+ communities across the US for China Town Hall, a national conversation on China, on October 24 from 6-8 pm in the Maxwell Library Lecture Hall, Room 013. 

Kaiser Kuo, host of the Sinica Podcast, a weekly discussion of current affairs in China, will speak at BSU on "China, the US, and the Internet: A Complicated Web." His talk will be followed by a national webcast with former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who will examine America’s economic, political and security relations with China.

Kaiser Kuo recently repatriated to the United States after 20 years in Beijing, where he worked as Director of International Communications for Baidu. He was previously a technology reporter in China. Kaiser was guitarist and co-founder of the band Chunqiu (Spring & Autumn), and was a founder of China’s first heavy metal band, Tang Dynasty. He is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and holds an M.A. from the University of Arizona.

Ambassador Susan E. Rice was national security advisor (2013-2017) for the Obama administration and U.S. permanent representative to the UN (2009-2013), as well as U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs and senior director for African affairs at the National Security Council. Her critical role as a presidential advisor developing and executing U.S. foreign policy makes her perspective on the relationship especially relevant during this uncertain time in the bilateral relationship.

For fifty years, the National Committee on United States-China Relations has been the leading national, non-partisan, nonprofit public affairs organization devoted to building constructive and durable relationships between the United States and China. This is BSU's third year as a participant in this national conversation.

China Town Hall is open to the BSU Community and the public.
